FAQs about Donating:
What types of bedding does
• Blankets and towels are best. Fleece throws,
pet beds and baby blankets work wonderfully, as well. Even fuzzy toilet lid covers are great for lining crates! Think soft, absorbent, CLEAN, and not too bulky... things you'd wash at home.
Is there any type of bedding
that Annie’sBlankets does not accept?
- For the most part, shelters and clinics do not
want bed sheets—they are not absorbent enough and
do not stand up to repeated laundering. Some shelters do accept flat sheets, however; call 831-442-8098 to ask about the shelter nearest you.
- Anything too bulky is difficult for the shelter
staffs to manage; this precludes comforters, bedspreads,
heavy area rugs, queen or king-sized quilts and mattress covers.
- Please, no down pillows or down-filled comforters... feathers everywhere!
- In fact, no pillows at all... they're too bulky to wash, and charities such as Goodwill will not accept pillows for people, either.
- No electric blankets, please, unless the cords are removed.
- No clothes, please!
What else can we donate to the collection barrels?
• Think soft and washable: items that can cushion
the bottoms of crates and kennels, wipe down medical equipment
and keep animals’ noses, paws and ears dry.
Collars, leashes and dog/cat-food bowls (not the food itself) are also welcome.
accept synthetic blankets?
• Yes. Again, if the blanket is soft, easy to manage, and
will hold up to repeated washings.
