At the Dogs’ Homes of Tasmania, we are dedicated to providing shelter, care and love to dogs in need. Your generous donations play a crucial role in supporting our mission and ensuring our furry friends receive the care they deserve.
We’re grateful for your help, and we want to make sure your donations hit the spot. Just like our pups have their favourite toys and treats, we have a wish list of items we always need, some goodies reserved for special doggy occasions, and a few items that, well, don’t quite wag our tails.
Ready to make tails wag? Here’s how to donate and be a true doggy hero:
Dry and wet puppy food: In its original, intact packaging and within the expiry date. No raw food or bones. We especially appreciate the Advance brand.
🐾 Tinned food for adult dogs: No need for dry food as we are grateful to have a sponsor providing us with dry food for our adult dogs.
🐾 Squeeze pouch baby food for training: We prefer meat and vegetable flavours to keep our pups’ tastebuds excited.
🐾 Quality soft treats and hard treats for stressed dogs: These assist in behavioural training and socialisation.
🐾 Toys: Ideally soft toys, puzzle/slow feeders and durable balls.
🐾 Calming products: Adaptil spray, Adaptil collars and Zylkene capsules (450mg) to be a dog’s best friend in times of stress.
🐾 Cleaning supplies: Donations of cleaning products such as disinfectants, paper towels and trash bags help keep the shelter clean and sanitary.
Please note: If you have items that aren’t on the list above, we regret that we won’t be able to accept them as donations. This helps us manage resources effectively. However, there are other shelters and animal organisations eager to receive your generosity.
We cannot accept the following items:
🚫 Broken/soiled Items: To ensure the health and safety of our dogs, we cannot accept damaged or soiled items. Clean and intact items are essential for their comfort and well-being.
🚫 Pillows, doonas, sheets, pillow cases, sleeping bags and bean bags: These items could pose choking hazards to our dogs. They may also be challenging to wash and dry, making it tough to maintain a clean living space for our furry residents.
Thank you for reading these guidelines, and for helping us make our shelter a loving and safe haven for dogs in need. Your support means the world to us and our canine companions!
