How this works

IMPORTANT NOTE: This search engine is maintained to retain access for the animal welfare organizations which signed up when it was launched. It's no longer in active development.

Animals in shelters and rescues need supplies everyday.


No-kill policies are being adopted nationwide. This means more longer-stay animals in facilities that are already short on resources. We help increase resource donations from animal lovers to help rescue animals in their communities. They need our help.


You probably have extra animal-related items you no longer use. Or, it may be that you want to help rescue animals but are not in a position adopt right now. This tool gives you a way to help homeless animals in your community by donating supplies they need right now. Since we localize search results, it makes it super easy to target giving nearby.


Search wish lists to see if any nearby animal welfare group needs any of the stuff you have too much of. Make a list and a plan to go drop off those items. There may be items you want to purchase for the group, just make sure you include a gift note. We encourage re-use, but mostly we want to make it easy to help animals, in whatever form that takes.


Tell the world. Snap a shot when you drop off and Tweet, Facebook or Instagram, tagged with #wishalizer or @wishalizerorg and we'll pick it up and share it, to keep building the community of giving to animals.
