Support a Pet Family in Need this Holiday Season
Want to help more pets stay in their homes? Contribute to our Angel Tree for Dorchester County residents!
Times have been extremely tough and costs to care for animals are rising. We want to help keep more pets in their homes by providing necessary supplies, such as food and litter, to owners.
We are asking for our community’s help to keep owned pets in their homes!
Ruff-ready to help? All you have to do is:
- Choose the family you want to help (you can choose to contribute to all or part of their wishlist)
- Purchase items
- If you would like to purchase the items yourself, please wrap and drop-off items to the shelter (During operating hours 12-5 PM). Make sure to tell a staff member that it is for the angel tree!
- If you would like to donate monetarily, donate HERE and we will purchase and wrap the items for you! Please write in the comment section that it is for the Angel Tree.
- We will deliver the supplies to pet owners on Dec. 23rd!
Pet Families in Need
Please drop off to Dorchester Paws before Dec. 21. Please come into our adoption lobby and tell staff what # family you are contributing to and they will place it separately from other donations.
You do not have to purchase everything for a family, if you would like to purchase a portion of the supplies please let us know.
Please only purchase Purina and Pedigree brand dog & cat food.
Toys must be new with tags & treats must be unopened. Food must be sealed & unused.
No rawhides or non-digestible chews/toys.
Feeling generous? The more the merrier. If you feel inclined to purchase more food, please do! Bags of food usually only provide a month or two’s supply.
Get festive! You can wrap your gift & include a name tag with the family # on the tag.
