Sometimes you just gotta give credit where credit is due. Snotface and Twiggy, those two best friends from opposite sides of the couch (so to speak... I mean, how many ferrets and Greyhounds are bestest friends, like they are?), have a wonderful post on their site about Santa Paws. If you don't know what that is... I'm sharing here... do join in! There's no time to lose!
The Santa Paws drive is a cause that "is dedicated to helping shelter animals have a happy holiday season! These furry friends are often overlooked during the holidays, and it is our goal to make sure they get the love, attention and gifts that other pets are lucky enough to get."
I can get behind this cause and have done so already. They are currently at about 38% of the $6000 they hope to raise in cash and have donations of toys and treats for both cats and dogs coming in. You can refer to the widget in my side bar for the most up to date numbers.
Here they are... do visit them and try to help, if you can. Sometimes, helping just means sharing so others can do something, too.
Forever Home Feline Ranch (this one is a fav of mine!)
KAR - Kyrenia Animal Rescue - this one is in Turkey! H.A.R.T Cat Shelter FAPF - Hungary - yes, they are really in Hungary!
FAPF Hungary - yep, that's Hungary, you read it right!
The Santa Paws Drive is the brain child of Dorian Wagner, who recruited more pet passionate elves to help her carryout her idea, and VERY successfully. This is their 4th year and the work of their generosity, along with all those who donate, is immeasurable!
Please visit the Santa Paws Drive site, follow them on Facebook and on Twitter and spread the word. If you can donate something, that would be most appreciate. Let's all help these shelter pets feel a little bit special this holiday season.
And there you have it. Do it. Yes, go on... do it. Show the world that Santa loves pets, too!
