If you would like to help us in our work, please consider donating any of the items on the list below. You can ask your veterinarian, doctor, dentist or pharmacy to donate supplies. Often they have items that are recently out of date or are upgrading their equipment. Hospitals are also a good source of supplies & often have ‘single use’ items that we can re-use.
Donations of the following equipment or items will help Tree of Compassion reduce overheads and direct more money to supporting our vital welfare work.
Items can be sent to our address in Australia (see ‘Contact Us’).
Please let us know if you are traveling to Nepal or India.
