Meet Our own deaf
There are a number of things
we are in need of. Some are one-time items, and some are ongoing type
items such as dog food. If you can help out in anyway, please let us know.
Our Wish List:
Food - We
go through 250-350 lb. of food a week. You can donate to us directly through our supplier,
Pleasant Hill Feed. You can reach them at (541) 741-2751. Just tell
them you want to donate something to our account. Or you can donate to us through PayPal, just click on the logo-->
Treats - Any type biscuits (MilkBone, Nutro, etc.) are most welcome.
We prefer Nutro brand treats but will certainly use other brands (or
even bulk). We use these as general rewards and treats. Sometimes we use
them for training, but mostly for that we use freeze dried chicken/liver/beef
treats, which we also are in need of.
Beds - After
years of messing around trying to come up with some sort of bedding
that would last, that could get wet, that was easy to clean, and most
importantly, that the dogs would not simply chew up, we found the
ultimate in dog beds. They are all we use now. The Kuranda Dog Bed is
unique in its design and is absolutely the best dog bed we have ever
seen. To find out more about the Kuranda Beds click here. And to donate a Kuranda to us just click on the photo on the right.
A Van for Transports - Thanks to Janis Eberhart we now have the perfect hauler, a nice old VW Vanagon.
- We use a lot of towels to clean up messes etc., and to wash or
wipe down the dogs. A towel around here does not have a long life, so we
are always looking for towels.
Wet Jet Pads. - We use a Swiffer Wet Jet to clean up after
the dogs. We can always use more pads for the mop.
Sized Dog Crate - We have several smaller crates but what we
really need is one of the giant sized wire crates (Size: 54"L x 37"W x 45"H). If you are unsure
what we mean, go here
and you'll see a great example.
Office Supplies - We always need basic office supplies such as;
ink jet printer paper, postage stamps, ink jet cartridges, laser toner cartridges,
double A batteries, etc.
type Scale - We got one!
- Odor Neutralizer
- We are always in need of odor neutralizers such as Simple Solution.
We go through gallons of the stuff because all our dogs are indoor dogs.
We even use this stuff in the Swiffer Wet Jet instead of their cleaning
Certificates - Gift certificates to any supplier of
any of the previous items are always welcome.
LCD Flat Panel Monitor -
We got one! Thanks to Katie and Matt Earle for our wonderful new monitor!!!
- Generator - We
need a back up generator. Living in a rural area we get regular power
outages. We need a backup generator to supply power when the utilites
are down. We have been told we should get at least a 15 kilowatt and we
need one that will run on propane. We need to ensure that the heat and
ventilation stays on in the dog buildings, even when the power goes
- We got one! Thanks to Barb Helberg. It's an oldie but like us, it's a golden oldie.
