Every load of laundry gets 2 cups of bleach.

Monthly Donation: Bleach

Our two shelters use between 6-8 gallons of bleach each day.

Effective sanitation is key to infectious disease control in a shelter. We use bleach as a disinfectant after cleaning, because it is inexpensive and effective against common shelter disease agents.

At HSCC-Hickory, including Foothills Spay/Neuter Clinic, we do about 15 laundry loads every day requiring 2 cups per load. All bowls and litter boxes are hand washed then disinfected using 6-8 cups of bleach each day. HSCC-Newton uses this much and more when you take into account the amount needed to care for the animal control side as well. We can never have too much bleach.Thank you so much!

Donations can be dropped off at either shelter during business hours. Hickory: Monday – Saturday, 11am until 6pm
Newton: Monday – Friday, 11am until 6pm and Saturday 10am until 3pm
