Santa Cause For Paws is an animal welfare organisation and online store that aims to make a difference in the lives of animals in shelters this Christmas. They plan to do this by collecting boxes of treats for puppies, kittens, cats and dogs and dropping them off at various shelters on Christmas Day. You can help by pledging to donate a box, containing 2 things yum, 1 thing warm, something fun and something useful. Or, you can offer out your workspace or home as a drop-off zone. Help put the wags back in the tails of unwanted and abandoned animals this Christmas.
