Host a Supply Drive

Looking for an easy way to support AHS? Consider organizing a Supply Drive, and collect items needed for our day-to-day operations. Supply Drives are free, easy to launch, and 100% of your donations will benefit the animals of the Austin Humane Society!

Each season at AHS brings a new set of needs for our shelter, so before you get started, we’ll send you our most up-to-date wish list of items. We’ve also put together a handy list of items we can and cannot accept below. Items can be left in the donation bin on the front porch of our shelter at 124 W. Anderson Lane. If you’d prefer to schedule a time to drop your items off with our team members, please email!
