There’s more than one way to help.
You can be a hero to these animals at the shelter. Your help makes a difference, saves lives, and completes families. No donation or volunteer activity is too small. Explore the many ways you can help.
The incredible cats and dogs who come through the Taylor shelter deserve to have quality foods, fun toys and the occasional spa treatment to look sharp. There is a constant need for supplies and/or monetary donations. Every bag of chow and every dollar helps our furry friends and gives them a chance to find a loving home.
Basic supplies needed to make our furry guests feel comfortable:
- Canned cat and kitten food
- Canned dog food
- Non-scoopable cat litter
- Dog harnesses (M-XL)
- Large chew toys for our big dogs
- Collars, all sizes but particularly large and extra large
- Dog cots to keep our guests cool and comfy
- Paper towels
- Bottled water for our volunteers
MEDICAL CARE DONATIONS
Another critical and ongoing need for the pets is funding for medical care for routine and unexpected needs, such as heart-worm testing, treatment and preventatives, tumor removal, treatment of cuts, fractures and other traumas, de-worming, and more. If you’d like to help in this area, please make a donation to our medical care fund. These donations will go toward urgent and routine medical care, as well as spay, neuter, micro-chipping, and other surgeries, and medical and dental care for the Taylor Animal Shelter cats and dogs. Learn more about some of our recent medical care cases, like Donna, Milo, Jackie, and Panda.

SKIP THE GYM & WALK A DOG
Want to get involved? Meet the animals, other great people, and make a difference? Sign up to volunteer at the shelter and walk our canine guests. It’s a great way to get some extra steps in, let the pups stretch their legs and work on their people skills. They will LOVE the chance to get out of their cages and hang with you for a little bit. Ready to get started? Fill out a volunteer application before an event, and we’ll be sure to bring a copy for you.
VOLUNTEER AT AN EVENT
Volunteering at an adoption or pet related event can be a fun way to help the animals by providing much needed exposure to those animals who need a forever family.
These events give the public a chance to meet and learn about some of the animals, and they give the animals a chance to get out of their kennels for an afternoon. On top of that, you get to spend time with a wiggly, bouncy, cuddly, furry love-ball. It’s a win-win! Please contact us if you would like to get involved in an upcoming event.
