Donate Items

Toys, food, and other pet supplies are purchased at wholesale prices, so a cash donation is more cost-effective than purchasing and donating those types of items themselves.

However, if you would like to donate new or used items to YVAS, donated items may be dropped off anytime during our business hours. Simply bring your donation through the front doors, and see our Greeter for delivery and receipt.  We also have a covered donation bin located at the front entrance where items can be dropped off anytime.  We are always in need of the following:
