How to Donate Items to Us
Patriots and Paws Offers a Free Pick-Up Service when we have volunteers available. Pick ups are usually scheduled 3 days a week. Please also consider a cash donation to help cover fuel costs, this would help tremendously!
If you are able to have your donated items delivered to us, please use the same contact methods listed below to schedule a drop off.

Please keep in mind that your donation is being given away for free to a Veteran, or active Military Soldier and their family. Please consider this when judging for yourself if your donated items will still have enough miles left on it to be useful to a family in need.
