Christmas Countdown Day 9- Santa Paws Drive

 

Did you ever want to play Santa Claus to shelter dogs and cats by delivering toys and treats to them? Thanks to a couple of elves you can make that wish come true!

The Santa Paws Drive was started 3 years ago to help make Christmas a little merrier to those dogs and cats still waiting for their forever homes.  An open nomination period before the drive is done to allow people to submit organizations they support and then 6 shelters are chosen from those nominations by the elves.  The last 2 drives have raised over $15,000 in treats, toys and donations!

This year the 6 shelters all help my favorite group of rescue pets- those that are considered less adoptable for reasons such as handicap, breed, or color. The groups that will benefit from the drive this year are: Belleglen Sanctuary, Blind Cat Rescue & Sanctuary, Greenfields Greyhound Rescue, K9Kastle Corp, Sheba’s Haven Rescue and Black Dog Animal Rescue.  You can learn more about these organization on the Santa Paws Drive website.

You can help by visiting the donation page and donating money or choosing one of the toys/treat items to donate.  They also have a raffle where 100% of the proceeds goes to the drive. Visit the raffle page to see what you could win.

If you are planning to donate, this weekend is the perfect time because they are having a 24 hour PawPawty during which all cash donations will be matched by Greenies up to $1000.  The events page has all the details for you to join in.

You won’t get to fly the sleigh and reindeer, but you’ll make a lot of dogs and cats very happy on Christmas morning.
