Lifelong Friends Christmas Wish List

The volunteers at Lifelong Friends are currently caring for more than 200 dogs and cats while these animals are waiting to be adopted. As you can imagine, our first wish is to find forever loving homes for all of them. While we are working on making that happen, your help and support can make a huge impact in the lives of our shelter animals. Please mail or drop off a tax-deductible donation or select items or ways to help from the wish list below. You can make a difference! For more information, please contact the shelter at (512) 267-6876 or e-mail us at info@lifelongfriends.org
