No Squeeky Toys Please
Toys that make a noise when you squeeze them can encourage some dogs to be aggressive towards young children because they squeek too. The device that makes the noise is usually small and can be harmful if swallowed. Some toys of this type contain a small battery which is poisonous if the dog eats it. The best toys are tuggers, tennis balls and hard chew toys that cannot be ripped apart.

You can sponsor a pet or you can choose to donate once, monthly, or for a specific dog you see at the shelter. Please feel free to contact the shelter directly if you have questions about donations you would like to send.
