Default Surplus insulin and supplies

Hi everyone,

Unfortunately our little guy succumbed to diabetes. We tried hard to fight it and now have a surplus of different insulin, pens, syringes and needles. It seems such a waste to just put it in the garbage. Not looking to get anything for any of it but would like to have shipping costs covered. Based in Canada so it would probably be easier to ship within Canada. If you are interested in anything in the pictures in the album linked below, send me a private message.

I am so sorry for your loss. When I lost my Gus in March, I donated his supplies to a rescue organization that has on-staff vet. They were very appreciative of the supplies. I donated meters, strips & syringes. I disposed of the insulin. I had quite a supply of strips on hand because I was buying them when they were on sale and kept a 6 month supply on hand. Kept one meter in case I get another dog and would need a meter.
