All proceeds save lives at Humane Educational Society!

Please call to make an appointment for furniture donations or if you're donating a significant amount of items.  

We do not offer pickup service. 

The shelter is not able to use pillows, sheets, or comforters, but will gladly accept metal food bowls, collapsible crates, towels, and fleece blankets.  Those items can be dropped off at the shelter Monday through Saturday 12pm-5pm.
