December is always a very busy time for us all. It is a time of giving and spending time with family. We know lots of people want to help, but often struggle to find a worthy cause. We want you to know that we can help as we have several causes with which we are involved. If you’d like to help, but don’t know how, please continue reading.
We’re going to kick off the month with a Buddy the Elf Christmas photos event. Join us on Saturday, December 7th from 2:00 – 4:00 pm for a Party with Buddy the Elf. We’ll have all of Buddy’s favorites in donut form. There will be plenty of photo opportunities, so please be sure to bring your camera and as always, pets are invited.
Toys for Tots toy drive – this is an annual event sponsored by the U.S. Marine Corps and we are so happy to be a drop off location once again. Each year we are amazed at the generosity of the community. We hope you’ll join us once again this year to help make Christmas for those in need, a joyful time. For more information on how you can help, visit the Toys for Tots page on our website.
Give Back event – this is your opportunity to nominate a deserving person, or family, for something for which they have a need. Some items include a full annual exam with vaccinations, preventative medications such as flea and tick and/or Heartworm. Visit our Give Back page to nominate someone you know who could benefit from this. They may be chosen to receive something special.
Tree of Giving – this is our fun even where you can stop by Claws & Paws and choose a paper ornament from our Tree of Giving. Simply purchase the item listed and then return the unwrapped gift with the tag, the tag is very important.
Items listed on the ornaments vary in value from a couple of dollars to around $20. Feel free to choose as many or as few ornaments as you are comfortable with. If you would prefer to make a cash donation, you can do that as well in our office. We recommend the form of a Visa Gift Card.
This year we’ve made it even easier to participate. You can visit our Amazon Wish List to purchase items and have them delivered right to our door.
The deadline for our Tree of Giving is Friday, December 13th.
