Donations

 
 

Thank you for your interest in donating to the Deming-Luna County Humane Society and Deming Animal Shelter.

As a non-profit organization, we rely heavily upon the generosity of our donors to help us care for Luna County’s homeless and at-risk pets and support the services that we offer to our community’s pet owners.

Donations of the following are always appreciated:

Peppers Supermarket Receipts

Peppers Supermarket, located at 812 E. Florida, in Deming, kindly offers our animal shelter a donation of a percentage of all their receipts that we submit to the store. Our organization maintains a collection jar for these receipts at Pepper’s customer service department located near the front of the store. If you prefer, you may also deliver your donated receipts to us at the Deming Animal Shelter located at 2135 Onate, in Deming.

Aluminum Cans, Metals and Electronics Recycling

Your donations of aluminum cans are always welcomed at the Deming Animal Shelter. We deliver the cans to a local recycling center and the proceeds help us to provide food, shelter and veterinary care for the animals at our shelter. Bags of empty cans may be delivered to the Shelter office.

The Shelter also maintains a large recycling bin located on the east side of our facility. You may deposit your donations of larger metal items and electronics such as computers, printers and cellular   telephones, in the bin 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Sorry but we are unable to accept refrigerators for recycling.

Unable to deliver your large metal items to our animal shelter? Call us to ask about our free pick-up service.

Pet Food, Treats and Toys

We always appreciate your donations of both canned and dry cat and dog food. Edible treats are always a welcome surprise for our cats and dogs. We are also often in need of puppy and kitten formula for our very youngest residents.

Our pets, particularly the puppies and kittens, always enjoy a new sturdy toy. Hard rubber or plastic toys are best due to the wear and tear these items receive from our younger residents.

Other Animal Care Items

Towels and blankets, used for our pets’ baths and bedding, are staples on our animal shelter’s “wish list”. New and gently worn (a few holes and stains are fine!) items are always in demand. Any size pet beds, ideal for mommies and their young litters, are a much appreciated luxury item at our shelter.

Many pets, particularly dogs, arrive at our shelter in need of baths and grooming. Pet shampoo and grooming products such as brushes and combs help us to prepare these pets for adoption.

Cleaning Products

We provide clean, fresh bedding to our pets at least once daily - more often as needed. We also wash and sanitize hundreds of food dishes and water bowls each day, 365 days a year. As you can imagine, that creates a great need for laundry detergent, dish-washing detergent and bleach. Donations of these items - any brand, any size - are always needed.

Donations of other household cleaning products (no pine-based cleaners, please) help us to keep the Shelter’s common use areas clean and sparkling.

Monetary

Monetary donations help us with the expenses related to the operation of our facility. Pet food.  Veterinary care. Utilities such as telephone, water, electric, heat and cooling. Gasoline for our Animal Control Officer vehicles. Maintenance of our animal pens and cages. Assistance with spay and neuter expense. These are just a few examples of how your cash donations assist us.

Donations made by check payable to Deming-Luna County Humane Society, may be mailed to us at P. O. Box 70, Deming, NM 88031. Donations made by cash, check, debit or credit card may be made at the Deming Animal Shelter, 2135 Onate, in Deming, during the Shelter’s normal business hours.

Please be sure to tell us if you would like your donation used for a specific purpose. We’ll gladly earmark the funds for that use.

Collection Boxes

Deming Animal Shelter cash collection boxes are located at over 20 businesses throughout
Luna County, NM. Thank you for depositing your spare change as it adds up to many full
tummies at our shelter.

Crates, kennels, animal cages and doghouses are always needed.

A small tractor would assist us greatly with Shelter landscaping and maintenance.

Large wheelbarrows are needed for helping us to maintain the landscaping in the Shelter’s public pet cemetery.

Office supplies such as copier paper and pens are often in short supply in our Shelter office. Plastic trash bags, in any size, are also welcomed!

Sturdy outdoor benches are needed for our Bark Park pet exercise area.
