We were so impressed with our community’s response to the shelter dog shoebox program this holiday season! A huge THANK YOU goes out to everyone who supported the cause!!
Given the overwhelming response, we think that we can keep the shoebox program going year-round.
Our goal is to collect donations throughout the year, in order for every dog receive a gift box upon entering the shelter. Imagine how much of a difference it could make for a dog entering the shelter to associate positive things (such as toys and treats) with this experience. Please help us share the love, year round!
When you are out and about, please keep in mind all of the shelter dogs who are waiting to find their forever homes.
Please help make a shelter dog’s day by filling a shoebox with boredom-busting materials like:
- Peanut Butter
- Chew toys that cannot be destroyed (ie. ropes, nylabones, etc)
- Tennis balls
- Anything else you feel a dog would love to play with!
Please Note: Filled shoeboxes should not be wrapped.
