When you are getting your gifts together can you please send $5.00 to your local animal shelter/rescue? Or send a care package with shelter supplies? If everyone did this I'm sure the animals (and the volunteers) would have a very happy holiday.

Shelter Wish List:

(Please call your local shelter and make sure that you are donating supplies which they are in need of. One shelter's "wishes" may not be the same as another!)

* cat & dog food
* kitten & puppy milk replacer
* cat litter & litter boxes
* kitty litter scoopers
* safe cat and dog toys
* cat and dog treats such as Nylabones™ for dogs, Pounce for cats
* blankets and towels
* sheets
* flea shampoo
* grooming supplies for cats & dogs
* q-tips
* clipper blades
* cat scratching posts
* carrying crates
* collars and leashes
* newspaper
* bleach
* paper towels
* toilet paper
* trash bags
* dish and laundry soap
* laundry baskets
* cleaning supplies
* office supplies - note paper, copy machine paper, fax machine paper,
index cards, etc.

Find out if your shelter houses animals other than cats and dogs. Do they need food or supplies for different animals such as rabbits, birds, etc?

Does your shelter have a "Sponsor An Animal" program? If they do and you can afford it, why not sign up? Some shelters will allow you to make a monthly donation which goes towards caring for the animal of your choice.
[Editor's note: Contact your local hair salons for donations of used towels. It's a great way to recycle towels that are stained or frayed, and the small towels they use are perfect size for shelter use.]
