Wish List

The Dogs’ Homes of Tasmania receive no recurrent government funding and are not affiliated with the RSPCA. We rely solely on private donations, fundraising events, grants and adoption fees to continue operations. These funds help cover the cost of food, medical supplies, transport and veterinary expenses. Your donations, both monetary and in-kind make our work possible.

Much needed items include:

  • Travel crates (particularly medium to large sizes) – used in our Foster Care program and to transport dogs when needed.
  • Jump proof portable pens for foster care.
  • Dog enrichment toys
  • Dog treats (as healthy as possible please)
  • Puppy canned food
  • Snuffle mats and snuffle balls
  • Food enrichment items such as wobblers, ‘go slow’/puzzle food bowls
  • A4 white paper for all of adoption packs and essential administration
  • Washing liquid for washing machines (we wash thousands of blankets and towels each year)
  • Demountable building for school and corporate groups (approx size 12m x 5m)
  • $1,500,000 to replace adoption and boarding kennels in Devonport and Burnie
  • $35,000 to fix the drainage issues in the exercise yards in Hobart (Pitt & Sherry plans available)

Small items can be dropped in to any of our three Homes in Burnie, Devonport or Hobart. If you have other items you think may be useful, please don’t hesitate to email: ceo@dhot.com.au

We sincerely thank you for taking the time to read our wish list.
