Donate Items

A Note About Meat: We get quite a lot of meat donated so please call us at 218-491-3604 to find out if we have room in our freezer. All donated meat must be labeled with its type, and the date it was frozen. We cannot accept spiced, flavored or marinated meat. Please do not leave meat donations outside our door – it goes bad sitting in the sun and can attract healthy wildlife, promoting habituation (we’ve seen bears in our back yard so please, please, please, help us to NOT train them to dig around the hospital for food)
