Great list! Maybe we could have folks add to it if they think of something not already listed and make it a sticky?

These are great ideas - I am planning to cross-post this on another forum (Bullies in Need)

SweetAsPie

First, they came for the Pit Bulls, but you didn't speak out because you don't have a Pit Bull.
Then they came for the German Shepherds, but you didn't speak out because you don't have a German Shepherd.
Then they came for the Akitas, but you didn't speak out because you don't have an Akita.
When they come for your dog, will anyone speak out for you? FIGHT BSL

I'm going to save this thread so that next time I go on a shopping spree I can get something useful to donate. Never really thought about printer paper and such. Thanks for the great ideas!

This list is awesome! When our local petfoodexpress did a donation drive for a local cat rescue, I believe and our local shelter, Niz donated several kongs (black ones and wubbas). Instead of throwing out the food that doesn't work with Niz (when we first got him), I should have donated it! Doh. Now I know.
