We can accept poultry products as food for the patients now, but we would like donors to call ahead 250 337-2021 so we can ask some avian flu screening questions before they go through the effort of bringing these items to us. For example, we can’t accept a chicken that has died on its own (must be culled) or shown any signs of illness prior to to culling.

Everyday Wish List

The small things really help, and we are always on the lookout for bits and pieces, odds and ends, such as:

  • Linens (see the complete list below.)
  • Paper towels, tissues, toilet paper
  • Garbage bags (small kitchen bags and large black ones)
  • Nitrile or latex exam gloves
  • Human vitamins or supplements (Vitamin B1, Vitamin D, Vitamin A, Cod Liver Oil with Vitamin A & D, calcium, etc)

  • Toddler/pet safe toys
  • Stuffed animals (without pellets or beans)
  • Any chewable/edible toys for small mammals and birds (available at Featheredaddictions.com)

It is very hard to say no to generous people, but there are just some items we can’t accept! Without your contributions of food, linens, vitamins and cleaning products, we would have to raise thousands of additional dollars. We have limited storage space and some items just don’t benefit our patients

No, thank you! items:  See the linens list and..

broken plastic or rusted kennels or bird cages
stuffies with beans or pellets such as Beanie Babies
– items with strong scents
used bike tires
