The goal of Santa Paws Drive is to bring joy to shelter animals for the holidays. In the past five years, we have focused on delivering toys and treats – and this year we want to step up that holiday spirit even more by giving them the greatest gift of all… a forever home!
Our two organizations are near and dear to the Elves hearts, and work together to save animals in kill-shelters by “shuffling” them to forever homes and no-kill rescues where there is greater demand for adoptions. This not only saves the ones they transport, but also buys the others still at the shelter time by freeing up space!
In the past two years, our organizations have saved more than 350 animals through their transport efforts, all of this is funded by donations only. Right now, the focus is mostly cats as they suffer much higher euthanasia rates in shelters than dogs, often up to 80%. The goal of Santa Paws Drive this year is to help them save 100 more lives!
Partners Rescues and Organizations
Our two organizations could never do it alone! Only through the generous help, care and compassion of the following partner organizations and rescues could all of this possible. Thanks to them, the cats receive excellent vet care, discounts on spays, neuters, medicine and other needs – and most important of all, a place to be transported to so they can be saved and find their forever homes!
