Donation Policy

EARS is very grateful to our community for the donations to help pets in need.  Proceeds from Thrift Store sales are an important component of funding for our mission. 

To ensure a sale, we can only accept items in “GENTLY USED” or “NEARLY NEWCONDITION, which is determined by our Thrift Store manager and our volunteers.

We CANNOT accept large furniture or large appliances. 

A tax receipt will be provided upon request, at the time the donation is made.

We are so thankful that our community is so giving and willing to partner with us to care for our cats and dogs until they can be placed in their forever homes.
