Santa Cause For Paws
Santa Cause For Paws is a registered NCP in Joburg. Their aim is to assist unwanted, homeless or otherwise neglected animals in any way they can. They do this mostly through raising funds on their website. Despite the name, this organisation runs year-round in a bid to help as much as possible. They have an online store selling trickets and gift ware, with all proceeds going to various charities across Joburg. They also do what they can to help other charities helping animals in townships, feeding ferals and fostering homeless furbabies.
Throughout the year, Santa Cause For Paws sells a range of gift ware on their online store. Items include handmade gifts, personalised mugs, silver jewellery and Christmas baubles, among others. The proceeds of these items go towards assisting animal welfare organisations across the city. These items can be delivered at an extra cost, or can be collected from pick up points in Kempton Park, Krugersdorp or Strydom Park at no cost. Here’s some more details about their offerings:
Santa Cause For Paws offers a wide range of gorgeous mugs that are fully customisable. The printed mugs are available in a range of options, with cartoon depictions of every dog and cat breed imaginable. Buyers can get their dog’s or cat’s name printed beneath the photo and can choose what colour they want their mug to be. You can also get a photo of your precious furbaby printed on your new mug. Or choose from a selection of funky printed mugs.
Looking for an outstanding gift for that someone special? Look no further than Santa Cause For Paws. This store has a wide range of gorgeous silver jewellery that makes the ultimate gift for any animal lover. Items include cat, dog, crescent, horse and paw shaped pendants.
To add a personal touch to your Christmas tree this year, why not invest in decorations made just for you? SCFP crafts unique Christmas baubles personalised with your name. You can also choose to have the bauble printed with a silhouette of your dog or cat or choose to have stars, paws or hearts crowning your trinket. Baubles are available in blue, copper, gold, green, red, silver, pink, purple, white, black and turquoise with names and designs in black or white.
If there’s a bundle of joy joining the family this Christmas then SCFP has just what you need. Gift the little one with their very own handmade blanket. These super soft blankets are adorned with teddy bears and are available in a range of colours. Pair this with a gorgeous handmade crocheted plush toy, and baby will be sleeping through the night in no time.
Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a special gift for our four-legged furbabies. And Santa Cause For Paws has just what you need to get your pet’s tail wagging. Gift them this festive season with a yummy Doggylish Treat. Or, make their next seven years with their very own Biscuit Bucket. Filled with an almost endless supply of Beeno Biscuits, these buckets are personalised with your dog’s name.
This Christmas, thousands of animals will be in animal shelters across Joburg, waiting for their furever homes. Santa Cause For Paws aims to add some wag to their tales this festive season by gifting as many animals as they can with their very own box of treats. You can help them achieve this by pledging to donate a box, or a few boxes, to a kitten, puppy, cat or dog.
Each box should be packed with two things yum (food and treats), something warm (a blanket), something fun (a toy), something useful (tick and flea solution, brush, leash, colour, shampoo) and an optional staff item (a gift for the hardworking staff at the welfare organisations).
After packaging and labeling the box, pledgers can then drop off the donation to one of the many drop-off points across the country. To see the various drop-off points, click here. The package will then be dropped off at shelters throughout the country.
There are many ways you can suppawt this extraordinary organisation. Other than suppawting their online store and pledging to donate a box, you can also volunteer, offer your home or business as a drop-off point, assist with transport or make a donation. This year, Santa Cause For Paws aims to raise R140500 for animal welfare organisations across South Africa. They also aim to give 1105 boxes to cats, 1705 boxes to dogs, 595 boxes to kittens and 765 boxes to puppies. The final date for drop-offs is on Sunday, 1 December 2019. Alternatively, you can make a donation until Tuesday, 31 December 2019.
