Donating Items Not Listed Above

The Rescue takes donated items on a case-by-case basis, depending on the current need. Email if you have other items to donate or find more information below.

Handmade Blankets

We love having handmade blankets to give the kitties during their time at the Rescue–they take their blankets with them to their new home too! The typical size that works best is 2′ x 2′ though other sizes will work too. For more information and instructions on making blankets, plus access to free patterns, you can visit: Please email if you have any additional questions.

Donating Medications & Medical Supplies

If you have medication or medical supplies that you are hoping to donate, we are able to take some non-expired medications and limited medical supplies on a case-by-case basis. SAFe’s Medical team evaluates the current need based on the cats in our care. We are currently not in need of renal supplements, mirataz, or insulin syringes. Please send a list of the other items you have to and someone will get back to you as soon as we can.

Stay SAFe Pet Pantry

We have created a community pantry to help local pet owners keep their furry family members fed and cared for. If you have extra pet food or supplies (feline or canine), you can help ease the stress of others who are struggling during this time of uncertainty. If you are in need of supplies yourself, please visit this page for more information. 

We can accept most unexpired food and clean supplies or other pet items for the pantry, please contact with any questions.

  • Food: Please make sure that open bags are securely closed to prevent spills. If food is not in its original packaging, we ask that you label it with the brand and what animal it’s for.
  • Prescription Food: We can accept most prescription foods that are not expired. Unfortunately, we cannot accept Y/D Thyroid Care food.
  • Litter: Please make sure that any open bags are securely closed to prevent spills.
  • Gently used items: Please clean or sanitize thoroughly before dropping off the donations.  

SAFe Rescue also recommends using Nextdoor, Buy Nothing, or other neighborhood groups to connect you with local pet owners in your community that may have an immediate need for their furry family members.

Thank you for supporting this community resource, and for making sure that local pet owners can care for their furry friends!
