As a non-profit, we rely on the support of generous donors like you. Donations in the form of funds, supplies, and volunteer time are always desperately needed. Check out the ways you can support WCHS below!


We urgently need these supplies. Donations can be mailed to the shelter or dropped off during our business hours.

Donate Funds

Did you know that adoption fees do not cover the complete cost of care for our animals? The rest is covered by donated funds. Please consider making a tax-deductible financial donation to help us continue caring for the homeless pets in our community.
