Donations to Animal Program Trust Fund
Financial Donations & Supplies
The Animal Program Trust Fund can accept monetary donations of cash or checks, matching grants, stocks or bonds. Please make checks payable to County of Loudoun with Animal Program Trust Fund noted in the memo line.
Please mail financial contributions to:
Loudoun County Animal Services
39820 Charles Town Pike
Waterford, VA 20197
The Animal Program Trust Fund is used to purchase supplies to directly benefit the animals but that are not provided for in the government operating budget. Donations to the trust fund are considered non-profit under Section 170(c) of the Internal Revenue Code since LCAS is part of a local government agency. This is a status nearly identical to that described by Section 501.c.3 of the Code.
Please note that donations are greatly appreciated, however, Loudoun County Animal Services (LCAS) does not have the capacity to pick up donations at this time. Donations are gratefully accepted at the shelter during public hours. Please visit our hours page for more information.
We currently are unable to accept towels, blankets or other linens. Our greatest need is for squeaky toys, large kongs for strong chewers, soft cat toys, reptile dirt, nylabones, kong wobblers, and puzzle feeders for all species. LCAS also maintains an online wishlist at Amazon.
Food & Treats
LCAS cannot accept opened or expired bags or containers of food or treats. These items can be donated to wildlife rehabilitation centers. For more information, please visit the Blue Ridge Wildlife Center website.
