Each morning I wake up and without missing a beat, the dogs jump up excitedly to greet me as I make my morning tea. As the warmth of the holiday season approaches, I can’t help but think about how thankful I am to share my life with them. The love the dogs and cats in this house show me each day makes me want to help other people have that very same experience.
In honor of the large impact of little things, I’ve decided to hold a big donation drive for Paws United Inc. – and I’d love for you to be a part of it! I’m doing this along with members of my Working with Dog pet business community to help animals in our own community and all around the world!
This year I will be collecting donations to benefit: Paws United Inc.
I chose Paws United Inc. because I believe in and highly praise the work they do, being a safe haven for discriminated, abandoned, and abused dogs. They provide many educational resources for the local community and use any donated funds to help fund a vast range of programs.
When our community provides essential supplies that keep pets fed, healthy, and happy, Paws United Inc can devote their financial resources to things like:
more comfortable facilities
increased medical care
pet food banks
stronger community programs like their Find-A-Pal program
It takes a lot to provide the basics of animal care. Food, treats, towels, cat litter, puppy pads, and tick and flea treatments add up to thousands of dollars every year. So, I’ll be collecting the following to donate:
Onguard Plus Flea & Tick Spot Treatment for Cats & Dogs
American Journey Chicken Recipe Grain-Free Dry Cat & Dog Food
Frisco Extra Large Dog Training & Potty Pads
Frisco Multi-Cat Unscented Clumping Clay Cat Litter
American Journey Salmon & Sweet Potato Recipe Grain-Free Dry Dog Food
American Journey Minced Poultry in Gravy Variety Pack Grain-Free Canned Cat Food
Let’s do this together!
Instead of boring shipping boxes sent by mail and opened by a single staff member, it’s so much more fun to fill up the rescue’s gift table with a HEAP of presents all at once, to share the giving spirit and holiday warmth with everyone who works, volunteers, visits, or adopts that week.
As you head out to shop these next few weeks, keep this wish list with you. Purchase an item or two on each trip or go on a big shopping spree if you like.
How to donate:
Every little bit counts. You can make donations through December 15th by emailing me at CJAshmore@pawfectphotomoments.com with an image of your donation and address. Once every two weeks, I will drive around Colorado Springs to pick up donations. Please box all donations.
On Saturday, December 17th, 2022, I will be packing up my SUV and delivering all your donations straight to Paws United Inc. If you are interested, I would also appreciate help packing or delivering donated items as well!
How to share:
I’ll be sharing social posts and sharing pictures of the donated items as the number grows between now and then so you can share in the celebration as we grow our pile of presents higher and higher in my living room these next 5 weeks.
I also encourage you to share your donated gifts on your own social media, too! Follow my posts on Facebook, share, or post your own pics with the hashtag #mydifference4animals.
Let’s shower the pets at Paws United Inc with holiday cheer for the Holidays! Reach out to me here at CJAshmore@pawfectphotomoments.com to add your donation to our gathering of gifts, and be sure to tell your co-workers, friends and family!
