Share the Santa Paws Drive Love and Help the Animals Who Need it Most!

Santa Paws Drive is in full swing and we'd love for you to help share the love! Santa Paws Drive is the first online Christmas toy drive to help shelter animals worldwide, and there are lots of ways you can help spread the word.

Six shelters have been selected from nomination across the world and you can read all about the Santa Paws Drive shelters here. With four organizations in the United States, one in Canada and one in the U.K, we are hoping to spread the holiday cheer to some very special dogs and cats this season.  You can get to know some of the dogs and cats who will benefit from the drive on the Santa Paws blog!

Read about how the Santa Paws Drive started and what it's all about.

Donate toys and cash for the animals who need it most!

Our goal is to send oodles (yes, it's the technical term for lots of joy!) of toys and treats and $900 to each nominated shelter this holiday season.  You can donate toys, treats or cash and every single dollar helps a shelter animal. Seriously, no donation is too small (or too large!). If you have a little extra pawket change, here's where you can donate! 

So far, we've raised bunches of toys (much smaller than oodles) and $368 in cash, so we have a way to go still. Toy and treat donations can be made until December 12 and cash donations can be made until December 20, 2011. (The elves need a few days to get everything packed on Santa's sleigh for delivery to our shelters!)

We pause a moment for a PSA from one of the rescue kitties!

Adopt Marvelous Mickey from Blind Cat Rescue in North Carolina and he will help you sweep! Take a look!

Please help us spread the word and consider helping the animals with a donation too!
