Wish List

There’s so much we need to operate on a daily basis! If you have any of the items on our wish list, please consider a donation. All donations are tax deductible. Items that will not be damaged by the weather can be dropped off at our Pit Stop location located at 109 Guthrie (Highway 169) in DeSoto Iowa at anytime or you may drop items off any Saturday during our adoption event at the Pit Stop in Desoto from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm (since we aren’t staffed it’s the only time we can guarantee we will have someone there to provide you a tax donation receipt). You may need to be patient with us as sometimes we are quite busy and low on volunteers.  If it’s more convenient you can also drop items off at any of our public events around town as well and leave them with a volunteer.    Our events can be found https://www.aheinz57.com/calendar/ or please visit our contact us page to reach us with questions or concerns.
