Helping holiday wishes come true for shelter pets

In a perfect world, every homeless animal would be adopted by a loving family today. But in reality, animal shelters remain very busy places, especially around the holidays. Just like children, these animals have Christmas lists, too, filled with wishes that caring community members could help fulfill by donating pet-related items to Claus for Paws.

Claus for Paws is a nonprofit organization that helps shelter animals live better lives while they await their forever homes.

The simplest wishes – cleaning supplies, bedding, food, collars, leashes and toys – often go unfulfilled or add up to a substantial expense. But with the community’s help, local shelters, rescue groups and other animal refuges will be gifted with the wish-list items they so desperately need to provide the best love and quality of life for the animals in their care.

During this time of making your list and checking it twice, Claus for Paws asks everyone to please consider supporting the thousands of homeless animals who don’t have a voice to express their needs. And they thank everyone in advance for giving lots of tails a reason to wag this holiday season.
