NOTICE: We are full to the brim with blankets, sheets, and misc. bedding and have enough to get us through the cold winter months. Until further notice, please consider donating your items of this nature to another shelter in need.
OUR GGOH WISH LIST for 2017
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR THINKING OF THE ANIMALS!
For those interested in helping us help the animals, our wish list is fairly short. While this page is targeting our "goods" wish list, we must state that our main wish is a monetary one - because we are a true "no kill" shelter, we continually have mounting veterinary bills as we ALWAYS do everything within our power to give the animals in our care the best possible lives while they await their forever homes. We take in many abandoned animals here at GGOH, and many come to us with the need for immediate medical attention and of course, it comes at a cost and weighs heavily on our budget. Whether it be routine veterinary exams or emergency medical situtations, we never deny an animal the care it needs and deserves. We have two main veterinary offices that we work with and both have open accounts ~ won't you please consider making a donation in our name at either of these two locations:
* Hudson Pet Hospital in North Hudson, 715-386-3511 or,
* New Richmond Veterinary
Clinic in New Richmond, 715-246-2467.
Donations can be made directly to either of these veterinary offices over the phone or in person. You may also make a veterinary fund donation right here on our website by clicking our "PLEASE, DONATE >>" button found above.
For those wishing to contribute goods, we ask that you provide items from the list below. While we do appreciate any and all donations, these are the main items that we are continually in need of:
13 & 39 Gallon Garbage bags
Dawn Dish Soap
Laundry Detergent Tabs
Cat Litter (Clumping ONLY)
Cat Chow Dry Food
Purina Healthy Weight Cat Food Dry
Wet Cat Foods (Pate style)
Free Wet Cat Foods
Metal Dog Food Bowls
Metal Cat Food Bowls
Dog & Cat Treats
Nylabone Dog Toys
Kong Dog Toys
You will notice that we do not have dog food on our wish list and there are good reasons for this. First, it is very hard on our animals to continually change the foods they eat and, some come to us with special dietary needs. For this reason, we like to stick with certain types/brands of food. Second, we routinely receive food donations from our great friends at Chuck & Don's as well as from our local Target store in Hudson, WI. So, while we do go through a lot of food on a daily basis, we have a steady supply of it already coming our way. Although you may be tempted to donate food to us, it would really benefit us most if you opted to give monetarily or selected items from our list above instead.
