SCLRR can always use large wire folding crates that are CLEAN and in GOOD condition. We also will accept NEW dog beds and NEW dog toys. If you have these items to donate, please contact us.

DONATIONS OF VEHICLES?
SCLRR has no affiliation with any company that claims to donate a portion of a car’s resale proceeds to charity. If you do sell your vehicle, however, the Labs would love it if you donate a portion of the proceeds to SCLRR yourself. 🙂
