Ways to Donate

Donate Supplies

Everyone can help a homeless animal at Portage APL and the donation of supplies is an important way to give. When you donate an item we need, it helps divert important funds to the purchase of other items or care of animals. You help the APL save money and lives by donating supplies.
If making an in-person donation, items can be brought to the shelter during business hours.
