Thank you for considering a donation to Ahimsa House! Support from individuals and organizations in the community is very important to our survival.

In addition to cash gifts, which help us cover the costs of veterinary care and emergency boarding for the animals in our program as well as our day-to-day expenses such as our phone bill for our 24-hour crisis line, we are glad to accept in-kind donations of new and gently used items. If purchasing new, please consider shopping via Amazon Smile or iGive and selecting us as your charity of choice so we will benefit even more!

We have included non program-related items, which are much harder for us to get donated. They may not be as much “fun” to shop for, but your donation of one of the items below will directly benefit our work by allowing us to save our precious funds for other needs. Thank you!

All of these items can be purchased from our Amazon Wish List and sent directly to us. Please be sure to include your name, email/mailing address so we can send a tax receipt.
