Operation Santa Paws

This site encourages folks to donate to their local animal shelters.
Publish date:

During the holidays many clothing and toy drives are held to be sure that everyone can enjoy the season. This site puts a different slant on volunteerism by encouraging folks to donate to their local animal shelters. The operator of this site is based in California and many of the activities center around Long Beach and southern California, but there is no reason this idea can’t be borrowed and used in every community in order to make life more humane for shelter and rescue pets. A handy wish list that would cover the needs of any shelter is provided, so you can adapt your school's drive to meet the needs of your community.
