See our Wish List for ideas of supplies we need. Normally we ask that you deliver donations directly to the shelter during normal business hours. As much as we appreciate the donation, we just don't have the resources to pick donations up. Also, if you are donating a large quantity of something that will require assistance to unload or will take up a large amount of storage space, we would appreciate it if you would please call us in advance to notify us of your generous donation so we can make sure to be ready for your delivery.  


We always need all sorts of services but commonly we need help with:

  • Computer support
  • Lawn and grounds care
  • Construction and facility maintenance services
  • Transportation

Please contact Michelle Earl, Executive Director (304-917-4275 Ext. 103) regarding donations of services.  

Acknowledgement of Donations

All donations are acknowledged in our quarterly newsletter. Also, donations made in honor or memory of a person or pet will also be acknowledged by letter to both the honoree (or their family) and to the donor. To ensure we make those acknowledgements promptly, please be sure to let us know if your donation is being made in honor of someone else so we can collect the necessary information.  

Remember, all donations are tax deductible!

We can provide you with a receipt for your donation for tax purposes at your request.
