NEADS goes through a lot of supplies that we need to replenish regularly. Consider making a donation of any of the following items - just click on the + sign to see the list. Our dogs will be forever grateful to you!
We sincerely appreciate the donation of any item(s) from this list for the Canine Center. Please contact us by email or phone at 978-422-9064 so we can thank you and help you make arrangements for delivering the items.
Our youngest pups, who live in the Nursery for the first 8 weeks of their lives, need a lot of supplies, too, and the NEADS nursery staff has put together a wish list of items they and the puppies could use. See our Nursery wish list, here.
