At this time, we are only accepting the following items:

  • Food: Unopened wet & dry food for cats and dogs
    • Please note that we are unable to accept prescription diets at this time.
  • Linens: Towels & blankets in good condition
  • Dog Toys: Any size and type in good condition
  • X-pens: In good condition
  • Crates: Wire & airline styles, under 36″, in working condition with no pieces missing

These items can be dropped off to the bin outside of our Sparkle Wilsey Pet Services Lobby between 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. daily. Please do not leave items that are not listed above. Since we can’t use or store them, we end up having to throw them away – and we know you want them to be used to help animals. We appreciate your generosity and hope you find another organization that can use them.

For more information or any questions on what specific donations HSSV will take, please contact us at or (408) 262-2133 ext. 110.

Pet Pantry

Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV)’s Pet Pantry Donation Program provides pets and pet owners with food to keep animals fed, in their own loving homes, and ultimately safe from homelessness. By supporting our Pet Pantry Donation Program with a donation of new and unopened bags and cans of cat and dog food (**please, no prescription diets for this program!), you save both animals and humans from heartache.

Pet Pantry donations can be dropped off directly in our Sparkle Wilsey Pet Services Lobby.

Alternately – want to donate with ease without having to drive to our shelter to drop off food? We’re most in need of wet dog food and kitty litter right now – visit our Pet Pantry Wish List below. Place an order and it will come straight to our doors to give to our clients.

“This was my first experience visiting the Pet Pantry, which blessed my doggie beyond what I expected. I’m so grateful. I visited the Pantry and was assisted by loading my car with more than enough nourishing doggie foods for my baby.”
