our wish list


Our Wish List is full of items we need to keep the shelter pets happy and healthy. If you would like to donate any of these items, please bring them to the shelter at 909 Bagdad Road in Leander or call (512) 260-SPCA. We will be happy to provide you with a donation receipt upon request. Thank you for helping us save lives and for your generosity!

Our most up to date WISH LIST is our Amazon Wish list, you can find that list here. This list has both every day items and specialty items we need. We update this list often and try to keep new or most needed items at the top of the list page. To make your donation go even further, use AmazonSmile.com, choose us as your charity to benefit, and a portion of all your AmazonSmile purchases will also be donated to us. Win-Win!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will you take used items?

A: ABSOLUTELY. We love gently used pet supplies you no longer need. Before you deliver large items (e.g., tall cat towers, large crates or dog houses), please contact the manager to ensure we have space for your donation.  Call 512.260.7722 or email info@centraltexasSPCA.org

Q: You need pet food, right? What kind?

A: We are lucky to be sponsored by Science Diet and to receive a large amount of high quality food through Tomlinson’s annual pet food drive. However, we coordinate with many rescue groups and local feral cat colony caretakers. If your pet has given the “paws down” to a new food, we’ll happily take new or open bags and find a group who can use it.
