Thanks to generous donations, the APS of Durham is able to provide care to thousands of homeless animals every year. Listed below are some of the supplies we use, most on a daily basis. The first few items in each category (highlighted in pink) are those that we use so consistently, we run out of them more often than other supplies. Gift certificates to Barnes Supply Company, Petco, Petsmart and Staples are always greatly appreciated and allow us to purchase what is most needed at a particular time. Thank you again for your support.
