Brownsville Animal Shelter asks for your contribution to support pets via Shelter Wish List

Local News

About 150 animals are kept in the Brownsville Animal Regulation and Care Center at a time. And with so many  furry friends to take care, the demand for resources can be pretty high. That’s why the shelter came up with a Wish List so people like you can contribute and support these pets.

“Since we are a nonprofit organization, donations are always welcome,” said BARCC Adoption Specialist Cristian Recio. “We don’t always have enough funding for any extra things, so this would help.”

The shelter is seeking donations on any number of items to make sure the dogs and cats here are receiving the ultimate care.

“If you’re interested in donating here at the Brownsville Animal Regulation and Care Center, we do have a Shelter Wish List,” said Recio. “It can be anything from dog or cat food, can or dry, stainless steel feeding bowls, new or used towels, new or used blankets, dog or cat shampoo.”

Litter boxes, dog and cat treats, and even tick spray can also be added to that list.

Shelter officials say this is a great alternative for people who can’t adopt but still want to help out these animals at the shelter. And because the animals here constantly need new items, every last bit helps.

These donations don’t have a time limit, and can be offered up whenever.

“This can be for any time of year. From January to December, it’s needed,” said Recio.

If you want to make a difference in an animal’s life, contact the Brownsville Animal Shelter at 956-544-7351.
