This is a wonderful idea to help animals in Rescue Shelters to have a happy Christmas.
I saw it on the ‘Ark on the Edge’ facebook page and followed the link to ‘The Santa Paws Foundation’ page which has 332 likes so far.
’Shoebox appeal for animals.
Decorate a shoebox and fill it with gifts before dropping it off to your favourite animal charity.
The Santa Paws Foundation – A special gift for pets at Christmas.
There are pets that are less fortunate and are without a home.
Anyone can fill a shoebox with toys for pets and stick a label on it stating what pet it’s for before sending it off to their favourite rescue centre’
There are 97 days to Christmas which gives us time to gather some boxes, buy a few extra tins of food along with our own pets food, some toys and some treats and not only help the animals but help the Rescue Shelters financially too with our gifts.
We do this every year for Children in Distress in the third world so why not do it for animals too? It’s a lovely feeling filling up a box and thinking of how excited the child will be opening it and findin lots of little surprises.
I think cats or dogs in care won’t mind sharing a box, we could get a bigger size box than a shoebox and put enough in for those unwanted animals to share.
We can all do this no matter where in the world we live, so come on ….let’s make it a very HAPPY CHRISTMAS this year not only for people but for animals too.
Go that extra mile.. It is Christmas after all. The most wonderful time of the year!
The Santa Paws Foundation aims to give homeless animals a better Christmas.
All you have to do is get a shoebox or any box really and decorate it in anyway you like, get creative. Then, fill it with gifts like treats and toys aimed at one species of animal e.g. cat, dog, rabbit, guinea pig etc. Next, save and print a label (available to save from this page) and write what animal type its for. Finally, drop the box off to your local animal shelter, or your favourite animal organisation.
