This holiday season, shelters across the nation crowded with cats and dogs need basic supplies from bedding to food. The Presents 4 Pets collection drive benefits these shelter dogs and cats, as well as rescued animals.
Now in its third year, the program, sponsored by the National Association of Professional Pet Sitters, collects donated premium dog and cat food, pet toys, bedding, leashes, harnesses, crates, and carriers. The effort goes beyond NAPPS’ members. Many different animal-related businesses work together including dog daycares, veterinarians, groomers, boarding facilities, and pet-supply stores.
The nationwide campaign has three goals:
- Help in the well-being of shelter animals.
- Support local shelters and the staff of caregivers.
- Create awareness of community shelters.
To help, contact your dog sitter or local shelter.
