Frequently Asked Questions about Item Donation
What type of dog beds can I donate?
We appreciate dog beds of any size and brand but please ensure they are not heavily used or with big holes in them.
What type of toys can I donate?
Shelter dogs LOVE to play, and socializing them using toys can be a great way to keep them busy whilst they wait for their forever home. Any lightly used or new toys are great.
Can I donate a comforter?
Absolutely. Comforters are great for lining crates and pens and helping to keep our dogs comfortable. Please donate comforters clean and without any large holes.
How do I donate a gas card?
We use SO much gas getting our dogs too and from vet appointments, fosters, the airport, and on rescue missions. Gas cards help us keep the show on the road. Please make sure that any gas cards can be redeemed at gas stations in Hilo or nearby, and either drop them off at the drop-off address or mail them to us at
Aloha Ilio Rescue, PO Box 492364, Keaau. HI. 96749. Note: Please no Costco gas cards, that's a long drive for us!
