What is the Santa Paws Drive you ask? Well, we celebrate the holidays with our families in our homes ... but what about the shelter dogs and cats that do not have families or a loving home? What do they do on Christmas? The thought is just so sad for me to think about but thanks to the Santa Paws Drive, those shelter animals get to have a very Merry Christmas too! As they explain on their website (link above), it's similar to Toys 4 Tots but for animals. You can donate treats, toys and/or money and it all goes to 6 selected shelters in the USA, Canada, UK and even Africa. They state that last year they were able to raise approximatetly $7,000.00 in donations including money, toys and treats. What a success!! This will be their second year in operation. The ultimate goal for this program is for adoptions but if that doesn't happen, at least all the doggies and kitties will have something to wake up to on Christmas morning :) Please note that I have also placed a widget on my blog, you can grab one too on their website to link to your blog or other social outlet. Let's give a big thank you to Dorian Wagner, also the founder of Your Daily Cute, and her elves for such a wonderful program and wish it much success for this year and years to come. Please visit their webiste for more information on the program and how you can participate!
