Food and other items

Please do not bring us items if we are not currently accepting them.

We spend approximately $2,000 a month disposing of unwanted donations and we would prefer to spend this money on animals in need. Read the list carefully and please only bring us what we need. Thank you for thinking of Lort Smith.

If we don’t need it, please contact alternative shelters, pounds, and rescue groups.
