Wish List - Briggs Animal Adoption Center

So many thanks to those of you who wish to donate to the animals at Briggs. If you are looking to donate, please know that we can use any of the items listed below but we also can always use cat and dog food, even if it isn’t the brand we feed the dogs and cats here at Briggs. This is because we also have a food bank on our campus and we can distribute cat food, litter and dog food to local rescue groups who are so often in desperate need of food for the stray animals and fostering animals they care for.  We run low on cat and dog food frequently in our food bank which means the strays don’t receive as much food from those people who care for them.

Our standard of care for the animals is of utmost importance to us. That means we are constantly in need of cleaning tools, cleaning products, towels, sheets and many other items, such as:

Gift Cards: (Gift cards and Monetary Donations are always needed): Home Depot, Lowes, Petsmart, Petco, Walmart, Target, Weis and other grocery stores

Linens: Sheets (Flat sheets only please-no fitted sheets), Towels, Blankets, Comforters, Bedspreads, Dog beds, Cat beds

Cleaning Items: Pine cleaner, glass cleaner, Clorox Cleanup, laundry detergent, bleach, liquid laundry detergent, dryer sheets, paper towels, scrub brushes, brooms, mops, Litter for cats (Scoop away, Fresh Step, Tidy Cat, clumping and non-clumping) and distilled water for our autoclave and other equipment.

Dog Treats:

  • Milk Bones (various sizes)
  • Bear Bites Treats for Dogs
  • Zukes Mini’s Assorted Treats
  • All Natural Treats (No additives, No dyes preferably)
  • Sensitive Stomach Treats and Sensitive Skin Treats

Cat Treats:

Dog and Cat Food: At the BAAC we keep our dogs and cats on one specific high quality dry food in order to avoid gastrointestinal problems. However, as mentioned above, we work with several local rescue groups to help feed the many strays and neglected animals in more rural areas. Any dry or canned food is deeply appreciated and what we don’t use here will be distributed promptly to help many needy animals.
