Most pet shelters operate using donations from the community. Often, the number of resources the shelters have don’t even come close to the amount of need they face. Though many elements figure into the existence of pet shelters, it is often irresponsible owners that cause most of the need for pet shelters.


So, if you’re a pet owner, the best place to start helping animal shelters is right in your own home. More responsible pet owners mean fewer shelter pets!

Unfortunately, while pet shelter donations are something that many people think about, they rarely seem to make them. While you may think that money is the only way you can help, there are many things you can do to aid your local animal shelter.


Whether you donate your time or items that can either be used, sold or auctioned, you can make a huge difference in the lives of many pets in just a few simple steps.

If adoption isn’t an option, a great way to help a shelter is through donations. Dent County Animal Welfare Society appreciate any and all community support and donations help save lives!​ There are many ways to give:​

  • Donate to Dent County Animal Welfare Society through PayPal

  • Donate unused or gently used blankets, towels and sheets

  • Donate unopened treats (no rawhide please), canned/dry cat and dog food, sturdy dog and cat toys, bleach, office supplies, small fleece blankets, etc

  • Volunteer your time
