Shouldn't shelter animals enjoy a Merry Christmas too? I think so and so did Dorian Wagner when she hatched the idea for Santa Paws toy drive, now in its second year. Dorian, the founder of Your Daily Cute, was inspired by programs like Toys for Tots. She wanted to reach animals on a larger scale and donate toys to shelters all over the world. With the help of Salina Gannon of Nip and Bones, Lynn Haigh of PawPawty, and Kerri Schlack of The Kitten Crew, Santa Paws was born!
The six shelters for this year were chosen based on nominations and include non-profit, no-kill shelters in the US, Canada, UK, and a small island off the coast of Africa. Last year donations large and small raised over $7000 in cash and toy donations! This year the bar is set even higher and the elves at Santa Paws are confident it can be reached (and even exceeded!). In order to reach these numbers and provide a fun and festive holiday for these homeless shelter pets, they need your help. You can donate either cash or toys; however, cash is encouraged because they are currently behind on their goal for cash donations.
