Donate a Blanket to Homeless Animals

Blankets are more than comfortable for animals in our no-kill shelter - they're comforting. Donate a blanket and make a difference.
May 11, 2009 - PRLog -- Josie, a mother dog, and her seven puppies snuggle cozily in their cage at Western Plains Animal Refuge in Hays, Kansas. They are alive and well, but their story nearly had a much less happy ending.

They came to Western Plains from another shelter where all eight were scheduled to be euthanized. Why? Because one of the puppies had ringworm, a very minor, treatable condition. Because it is contagious, and because many shelters are not equipped to handle medical issues, this small problem was going to be a death sentence.

Each day, Western Plains Animal Refuge volunteers change the lives of animals and the people who love them. Our network of caring volunteers help us to rescue and find homes for hundreds of wonderful pets each year.

In addition, we have rescued and rehabilitated hundreds of wild animals, from the smallest bird to larger animals like deer, bobcats and raccoons.

Now we need your help.

All of our animals are kept warm and safe while they are in our care. For many, the blankets in their temporary cages make them feel secure and comfortable. We go through many, many blankets each year, and are asking for blanket and towel donations to replenish our supply.

If you have an old (or new) blanket you would like to donate, please drop it off or mail it to:

   3340 E. 27th
