There’s A Very Simple Way To Help Homeless Dogs Enjoy The Holidays

There’s A Very Simple Way To Help Homeless Dogs Enjoy The Holidays

Santa doesn’t usually visit animal shelters. Partly because there are no chimneys, and partly because reindeers are known to cause distress and confusion amongst dogs unfamiliar with Western culture.

Fortunately, you have the power to make the holidays a little brighter for the many, many dogs (and cats, but just because it’s the holidays, don’t get used to it) in shelters nation-wide. With the donation of a care package, shelter animals can enjoy toys and treats while they patiently await their forever homes.

Contact your local shelter or humane society for more information on how to donate. To learn more about what kind of items make up the ideal care package, click here, or consider donating one of the pre-made packages below, many of their proceeds even go to animal shelters and other organizations!
