As for the cat's enjoyment, the following supplies are always needed:

  • Enrichment toys help cats with boredom!
  • Purina indoor cat food and Purina Complete formula food
  • Treats...the way to any cats heart!!!

If you would like to help out our  cats by volunteering at the center, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

If you can help the SMAWL  cats by giving supplies, please feel free to drop them off at All Kinds Veterinary Hospital in Callaway or at any of our Adoption Events at Petco in California, MD which are held every 1st and 3rd Saturday of every month.
