Almost everything helps!

Below you can find three lists of specific items that we appreciate receiving due to the amounts we use, but is certainly not an exhaustive list.

Beyond these specific items, we also accept donations with a range of options attached to them. For example, Canadian Tire money is ALWAYS appreciated as it helps us buy other supplies.

Another option to consider are HBC reward points. You can donate your points all-year round. Through your assistance, we will be able to buy much needed supplies for the shelter or prizes for fundraisers. If you wish to donate your points to D'Arcy's A.R.C., simply go to the HBC rewards points page: and follow these steps:

  1. Click on: Donate to Charity or Community (on left side of screen close to the bottom)
  2. Click on: HBC Rewards Community Program
  3. Click on: Donate to a Community Group
  4. Click on: Search for a Community to Make a Donation
  5. Go to the Province field and select "Manitoba" and then click "Continue"
  6. Find "D'Arcy's A.R.C." and click on "Donate Points"
  7. Click on the Percentage that you want to donate
  8. Put in a Start Date (cannot be retroactive)
  9. Put in an End Date and click "Save"
  10. Then click "Submit"

If you have something that you would like to donate but don't see it on the lists below, don't be discouraged. We accept just about any donation you can offer, with those items that we can't use for the animals directly being sold at our thrift store. Sales at our thrift store benefit our customers and any revenue generated comes directly back to support the animals at the shelter.
