Protect your pet. ShelterCare Pet Insurance Programs
Wish List


Running an animal shelter and caring for more than 10,000 animals per year is expensive. The Capital Area Humane Society is always in need of the following items and is grateful for all the public support we receive. 

*CAHS feeds Science Diet Food only to our animals. Non-Science Diet brands donated to CAHS will be given to other shelters, rescues, or families in need.

Bold items indicate items which are urgently needed at this time.

Thank you so much for your generous donations!
