Other ways to get involved

Provide comfort

Donation Drives

Holding a drive to collect bedding, toys or pet food is a fantastic way to get friends, family, colleagues and clients involved in supporting dogs and cats in need. With tens of thousands of cats and dogs relying on our care each year, bedding and pet food are always high in demand.

Items we gratefully accept include:

  • Blankets
  • Towels
  • Cat and dog toys
  • Cat litter
  • Dog leads
  • Good quality tinned and dry pet food


Unfortunately we are unable to accept doonas, quilts, pillows and cushions, or any furniture.

The Home is happy to provide promotional material where possible and will suitably acknowledge your groups efforts. Contact our Supporters Team on 03 8379 4453 or email supporters@dogshome.com for more information.


Handmade blankets and dog jumpers

Dogs of all sizes, particularly short-haired breeds, appreciate the warmth of a knitted, sewn or crocheted jumper or coat.

Rugs and blankets of all sizes are primarily used for cats and kittens and within our hospital and provide these animals with additional comfort and warmth.
