Wish List

As a charity, our main goal is to have our supplies donated so the majority of our monetary donations can go directly towards our veterinary bills. Take a look a few of our most needed items. You may just have one or two kicking around at home that you no longer use!

Kennels & Crates

The majority of our foster homes work full time jobs and as such they begin the kennel training process with their foster dogs! This helps immensely with housebreaking and getting into mischief when left alone. We can use wire or plastic kennels of all sizes, but are typically in need of the medium-large sized kennels and crates!


Medium and large dog jackets
Hot water bottles
Heating pads
Starfrit kitchen scales
Facial tissue (Kleenex)
Scouring pads
Measuring cups and spoons (plastic and metal only)
Scrubbing brushes

 Puppy & Dog Food

We are always in need of food, especially puppy! Most of our Underdogs come into care malnourished and underweight. Puppy food has more calories that really help them to put some weight on. Our preferred brands are Costco’s Kirkland line, Pet Valu’s Performatrin line or just about any medium-high quality dog food also found at Global Pet Foods and Pawstruck Pet Nutrition!

 Collars & Leashes

New dogs are almost always scared and unsure when first coming into care. To keep them just a little bit safer, we use martingale collars prevent them from slipping out of collars if they become scared or spooked. Global Pet Foods at 1220 St. Mary’s Road in St. Vital will hold collars and leashes purchased at their store to save you arranging delivery or pick up to our foster homes across the city!
