Hello everyone....

I need to buy a bunch of plastic baby pools. The problem is I need to buy them from a place that will deliver them to Town Lake Shelter. My car is the size of a shoe so I can't take them.

I googled and came up empty.....frankly I don't even know where to buy a plastic baby pool.

Anyone have any suggestions?

I think places like Toys R Us, Walmart, Target that have online shopping will ship to whatever address you'd like. I hope this helps.

Thanks I checked those....Wal Mart and Target only have inflatable ones and Toys R Us has them but they are small only 3ft and they won't ship them.

If you can't borrow a car from a friend, then how about renting a truck for an hour or two from Home Depot and just going to Toys R Us to get them in person? HEB had some a while back but not sure if they still do.

I thought 3 feet would be about standard. What size are you needing?

Just talk to the store manager. Almost every store, even the big evil chains, will help out places like animal shelters with something minor like delivery. It's good PR. For example, when I worked at HEB as a cashier in college, I delivered Christmas trees to some non profits since I had a truck.

Good idea!

Default Thanks....

I'll stop by HEB again tomorrow.

The pools that we have now are at least 5ft wide maybe even 6. There are some BIG dogs at the shelter that like to splash around.
