More Ways You Can Help
Donations Always Welcome
Pickens Animal Rescue is a non-profit organization established to provide a life saving haven for the abandoned
dogs and cats in our community. We rely heavily on your donations. Whether you donate funds, supplies or volunteer time, we appreciate your support. These are OUR pets and they, as well as we, are grateful for your contribution in what ever way feels right for you. Together we make a difference.
Below you’ll find a list of items that we frequently use and need. If you purchase these items for us, please bring them to the Pickens Animal Rescue Thrift Store or our Veterinarian Hospital at 371 N. Main St, Jasper, GA 30143. You can also use the Amazon Smile button (in the sidebar to the right), purchase them on-line and they’ll be shipped directly to the Rescue Ranch. We also welcome gift cards from Walmart, Tractor Supply, Home Depot, Petsense, Petsmart and Kroger. Thank you!
A Note About Dog and Cat Food
Pickens Animal Rescue does not currently receive a food grant for our rescued pets. We rely on the generous donations from our PALs. Below is a partial list of pet food that we prefer to feed the dogs and cats living at the Rescue Ranch. While the price per pound of food is higher for most of the brands we have listed, so is the quality of the food and nutritional benefit to our pets. The higher the quality, the less they actually need to eat.
DID YOU KNOW? The volume of stool is directly related to the amount of indigestible ingredients in the food. Some level of indigestible fiber from healthy sources is good, since fiber helps clean the digestive tract, stabilize blood sugar and maintain good weight. However, if the ingredient list includes a lot of meat and grain by-products, much of the food that goes in a dog’s mouth passes right through his system and comes out the other end. Now, imagine having pooper-scooper duty for 50 or more pets every day!
