SantaPawsDrive.com Makes Christmas Special for Shelter Pets - -

Mon, 19 Nov 2012 18:51:02 EST

Deerfield Beach, Fla., November 19, 2012 – While pets with loving homes are showered with gifts and love during the holidays, animals in shelters tend to be overlooked and alone during these busy times.
 
Now in its fourth year, SantaPawsDrive.com is the first-ever online toy and treat drive dedicated to changing that and delivering holiday cheer to dogs and cats still waiting to be adopted. In the past three years, the Santa Paws Drive has raised approximately $30,000 in toys, treats and donations for 18 shelters worldwide.
 
This year, Santa Paws Drive is supporting six non-profit, no-kill rescues that do outstanding work to help animals in their communities. Prior to the official launch of Santa Paws Drive 2012, animal lovers from all over the world sent in nominations for hundreds of worthy shelters. Six shelters were chosen based on need and nomination note. Four are in the United States, one is in Hungary and one in the Turkish Province of Northern Cyprus.
 
The 2012 Santa Paws Drive shelters are:
·      Bobbi and the Strays – Glendale, New York 
·      Castaway Critters - Blairsville, Georgia 
·      Forever Home Feline Ranch – Springfield, Illinois 
·      Foundation of Animal Protection – Fuzesabony, Hungary 
·      H.A.R.T. Cat Shelter – Cumberland, Maine 
·      Kyrenia Animal Rescue – Girne, North Cyprus
 
All combined, there are more than 750 cats and 450 dogs in the care of these six rescues. The goal of this year's Santa Paws Drive is to raise $1,000 in cash donations for each one ($6,000) plus enough toys and treats to make sure each animal at each shelter receives a gift. The donations will be divided between the shelters and shipped off in giant gift packages to the lucky dogs at cats at each one in time for Christmas.
 
The last day for cash donations is December 20. The last day for toy and treat donations is December 14, so the Santa Paws Drive elves can have enough time to sort all the items, pack them up and ship them off in time for Christmas delivery! Donations can be made online at SantaPawsDrive.com.
 
The Santa Paws Drive is the dream of Dorian Wagner, founder of YourDailyCute.com. The other Santa Paws elves include Kerri Heath (TheKittenCrew.com), Salina Gannon (NipandBones.com), Lynn Haigh (DougalsDen.co.uk), and Diane Silver (ToDogWithLove.com).
