Coronavirus: What we’re doing and how you can help.

How it works

1) Select your ornament:

Visit a location of an Angel Tree to select your ornament (or ornaments)!  Each ornament has a picture and a description of an adoptable animal in our shelter or in a foster home, along with a “wish list” of their needs and our shelter needs.
Scroll down for a complete list of all our Angel Trees and their locations in the area!

2) Go shopping:

Pick up the items you wish to donate to the animal you’ve selected. If you wish to purchase more than what’s on the animal’s wish list, please feel free!
*** If your holiday schedule is just too busy for you to make a shopping trip for us, don’t worry! Each of our ornaments also has a pre-addressed mailing envelope for you to send us a financial donation. These donations are much appreciated, and they also allow us to continue our life-saving work! Please feel free to select an Angel ornament if you intend to send us a tax-deductible financial contribution! ***

3) Schedule an appointment with us at the shelter OR visit a donation drop-off location:

We need to be sure there is a staff member available at the shelter to receive your donations, and to let you meet the shelter animal whose ornament you’ve chosen.  We also need to give you entrance instructions for our shelter, since we’re in a non-traditional location.

We will be very flexible in setting your appointment time for your donation drop-off.
If your holiday schedule is just too busy to be able to schedule an appointment, we have a few locations around the area that are designated “drop-off points” for Angel Tree donations.  The list of drop-off locations is below, and you can drop off your donations during normal business hours at these locations. We have staff and volunteers who visit frequently to pick up donations that pile up there.

4)  Hang your Angel ornament on your own tree, as a reminder of the life you helped save:

There’s no need for you to return the ornament to us. Instead, keep the beautiful ornament and hang it on your own tree at home, so you can enjoy the satisfaction of knowing you donated to help our shelter animals have a merry holiday season!
