Donate new items through our curated wish lists

To make donating simple, we've curated an Amazon and Chewy wish list with specific items that we need and use regularly in our shelters. When you purchase through one of these wish lists, you can ship items directly to our Golden Valley location.

View our Amazon Wish List or our Chewy Wish List for specific items we're looking for. 

New Chewy users also have another opportunity to give back. Through the Chewy Gives Back program, $15 of your first purchase from Chewy (from our wish list or not!) is donated back to AHS when you use our referral link.
