Bottle Drives

Bottles and cans are an easy way to donate to our shelter. If a bottle drive is not posted, you can always drop your recyclable bottles, etc at the Crossfield Bottle Depot, located on Railway Street and tell them they are for Tails to Tell. They keep track of the donations for us. If you can’t make it to the Crossfield Bottle Depot during their business hours, please drop them at the shelter during our business hours. If they are left outside when we are closed, they may not be there when we re-open. We also have volunteers that can pick them up from your house – call and schedule a pick up

Event Donations

At many of our events, we have silent or live auctions. Items have ranged from a pair of earrings to a trip to Cabo Mexico! If you have something you would like to donate, please contact:
