Donate Today


Your donations go to help the pets most in need in our community.

Proactive GraphicWe have been strengthening our outreach to at-risk populations who are struggling through very difficult times through Door to Door. Some of the basic pet care items that we bring to pets through this program are: leashes, collars, harnesses, cat and dog food, flea preventives, grooming supplies, sturdy toys, and warm dog sweaters/jackets. Please consider donations of new or gently used items to help us, help them!

Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter welcomes and encourages donations to help support the important programs and services that provide care for lost and homeless animals in our community and fund education and outreach programs that promote responsible pet ownership through spay/neuter, vaccination and licensing.

If you would like to make a donation “In Honor Of” or “In Memory Of” a specific person or pet, please include that information in the comments field as you donate.
