Wildlife supplies needed

Our wildlife rehabilitators provide care for over 3,000 orphaned and injured wild animals each year. These specially trained individuals are volunteers who donate their time, money, and energy.

The items listed below are a constant need in the well being of the wild animals we care for. You can make a difference in a wild animal’s life by contributing any of these items. Items donated are tax deductible and will be shared with our network of rehabilitators as needed. Thanks for your help!

Supplies can be brought to the Animal Humane Society in Golden Valley. Make sure to clearly label them “For Wildlife.” Please leave your name and address with any donated items so we can document and acknowledge your donation. Also make sure to indicate if you need a receipt to be sent to you.
