Hold a Wish List Drive
Click on MHHS' current Wish List to find out what supplies are needed and hold a wish list drive to collect those items. Advertise at your school (with permission) or in your neighborhood and find a designated area to collect items. Get a few representatives to take the supplies to MHHS and see the animals who will benefit from your hard work. You can also do specific drives, such as a food and toy or blanket drive.
Collect Empties for the Animals
Help us with our ongoing fundraising project to help the homeless animals of the Capital Region. You can hold a returnable bottle drive and deliver the cans and bottles to us.
Bandanas for Dogs
Cut material into various-sized triangles to make colorful bandanas for dogs. You can even get creative and cut out fabric letters or use craft paint to add phrases like "I'm Available" and "Adopt Me." (Just be sure to use non-toxic glue and paint.) These are great for shelter dogs to wear at off-site functions.
Donate Shoe Boxes
Natural cardboard-colored shoeboxes can be used for the small animals up for adoption. They love to hide in them and sometimes chew them up. Boxes are also used for the shelter cats and kittens, keeping them happy and alleviating stress while they await new, loving homes.
Come up with your own creative idea!
