The Pulaski County Animal Shelter & Humane Education Center is a wonderful facility, but it takes a lot of simple household and pet care items to keep things running smoothly. Your donation of any of these items helps to keep our shelter stocked and allows us to use money from donors for medical treatments and other costs.

Kuranda Pet Beds are heavy duty hammock-style beds that are made to stand up to extra wear and tear. They keep our shelter aniamls off of kennel floors and are easy to rinse when they get dirty.
Kuranda offers their beds at wholesale prices to people who choose to donate them to shelters. We have selected several sizes of beds for donors to choose from. We have also selected their 40 oz. vinyl fabric for its stability and waterproofing.

Please consider giving a shelter animal a good night's sleep!

Donate a Bed!


Donate a Thundershirt! Thundershirts wrap around dogs and help to calm their anxiety in scary situations. Animal shelters and new foster homes can be stressful places, so the gently "hug" of a thundershirt can be very reassuring.

In your home, Thundershirts are great for more than thunderstorms. Users report they're great for dogs who are afraid of fireworks and those that experience separation or travel anxiety. The Thundershirt wraps around your dog's body and fastens securely with Velcro. For more information about how and why it works, visit the Thundershirt website.

Created by Hugs for Homeless Animals, the Snuggles Project invites crafters to turn their leftover yarn into security blankets for shelter animals called "Snuggles".

Doggie Snuggle    Kitty Snuggle

If you'd like to make snuggles for the shelter animals, we'd be happy to take them! Snuggles can be any size from 18"x18" for puppies, to larger blankets for big dogs. The official website has patterns and ideas, but as long as the ends are knotted and tucked away to keep animals from unraveling the yarn, your snuggles don't have to be fancy or follow any specific pattern or color scheme!
