Ugly Mutts is a not for profit, volunteer based rescue.  The dogs we rescue come to us with nothing but the hair on their backs and sometimes not even that.  We do not have a shelter and instead rely on a host of foster homes to care for the dogs we rescue until they find their forever homes.  To help our foster parents we supply all the necessary items that enable them to maintain the dogs and it is only with the help of generous and caring people that we are able to do this.

If you have any dog items that you are no longer in need of, you can be assured that we will put them to good use!

We are always grateful to anyone who donates – it can make a difference!  Even a box of treats used for training can give a dog a better advantage when it comes time for adoption.

Please contact us at if you have any questions or if  you would like to set up a drop off for donations (new or used).  Our rescued dogs thank you!


We are always in need of:


  • Wire Crates and Plastic Carriers (any usable condition)
  • Leashes and Collars (all sizes and gently used is fine)
  • Food Dishes (stainless please for sanitary purposes as they are reused many times over)

  • Dog Toys (all kinds and gently used is fine)
  • Flea Control (all sizes)
  • Shampoos (Dawn Dish Soap or Baby Shampoo is fine)
  • Brushes and Other Grooming Supplies (all kinds)



We are also in need of:


  • New or used Towels
