Donate Pet Supplies to Animal Shelters & Rescue Groups

If you have pet supplies you'd like to donate — such as pet food, treats, toys, collars, leashes, bowls, clean beds, clean towels and blankets, veterinary supplies, and other items — we suggest you contact a local animal shelter, rescue group, or Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) organization to find out if they can use the items.

Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC) accepts donations of many items. Find an ACC location where you can drop off donations.

Many NYC-area animal shelters and rescue groups post individual pet supply and equipment wish lists on their websites, some linking directly to gift registry pages where you can order exactly what they need from an online retailer.

You can compare costs on wish list items for shelters and rescue groups by checking out Capital One Shopping.
