If you have stopped for something to keep you warm over the last week you may have noticed that our tree is up and ready to go. Too soon? Hear us out! While the holidays are a time of happiness and cheer, it is always important to remember to give back and remember those in need. One group you may not readily think about are our furry friends without homes or supplies in the cold season. SF has paired with our local friends, Paw Platoon, for their second annual giving tree to provide local rescue pups with good tidings. Our dog giving tree was such a success last year, we couldn’t find enough space for all the donations. We are hoping this year to be busting at the seams with dog food once again!
To participate, grab a photo of a dog off the tree, grab your joe, and go! Examples of needed donations are on the back of the photo and they are due back to us by 12/24. Quick, easy, and guaranteed to make you feel good. This year’s high ticket items include Martingale collars (M/L), leashes, Kong toys, Nylabones, bowls, 4health or ProPlan dog food, toys, harnesses, dog beds, and gift cards to any local pet shop! Donate what you can within your means! The smallest bit helps.
We want to thank Paw Platoon for their rescue, recover, and rehoming efforts that they selflessly provide day in and out. It is our honor to help this cause. Of course, please don’t forget, you may also provide the greatest gift of all- a home. If you are looking to adopt, you can refer to Paw Platoon’s Facebook to fill out an adoption/foster form and view available dogs. https://www.facebook.com/pawplatoon/
We hope to see you soon and that you will participate in our giving tree!
As of 11/13: 76 dogs have been taken from the tree to be sponsored! Check back to see our progress.
