Pet adoption is the best way to save a life, but there are other ways to help too. “Operation Santa Paws” encourages animal lovers to share the gift of giving at shelters everywhere from Dec. 1 to 24.
The campaign goal of Operation Santa Paws is to stock the shelters with much-needed supplies. Unfortunately, about 7.6 million companion animals enter shelters around the country yearly. Although many get adopted, the majority spend much of their lives in cages. December is a time to donate a new blanket, toy, or even some treats for a shelter animal to enjoy during the holidays. Contact your local shelter or rescue and see how you can help today!

Bradie(Adoption #BF3607) doesn’t know it yet, but she’s a very lucky little girl who gets to begin her search for a home with her friends at Animal League America. Shy and reserved at first, all this tender 7-month-old tabby needs is a comfortable, quiet place to learn that being loved by a family is the life she deserves.

Katy Purry (Adoption #NCR707) isn’t exactly a firework and she’s not going to roar to get your attention. The truth is she’s come a long way to be discovered by you—all the way from North Carolina. Someone as lovely as she shouldn’t be waiting very long to be swept off her paws and carried home. This 3-year-old southern beauty would enjoy a quiet, cat-experienced home with children 12+ in age where she can have all the freedom she’s been missing lately. As the only pet, she promises to fill up your home with all the love and affection stored in her heart that she’s waiting to share. Please give superstar Katy Purry the ride home she deserves.
**Double Adoption**Rio (Adoption #NCR5873) and Dublin (Adoption #NCR5883) took a long trip to Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption Center from their shelter in North Carolina in hopes of landing a family of their own to share forever. Rio had his doubts at first, but he’s warming up to the cag- free life and steady flow of treats and ear rubs. His best friend Dublin is still unsure about his human friends but derives a lot of comfort in seeing his brother’s confidence grow. We’ve no doubt a quiet, cat-experienced home with patient children 12+ in age will give Rio and Dublin all the time and space they need to grow into being members of a family.

Little Miss Belle needs a home. She’s approximately 1 yrs old and weighs roughly 10lbs. We think she may have been hit by car as she has a wobbly walk, but she gets around just fine. She is spayed, UTD and otherwise very healthy. She must have been loved at one time because she’s very sweet and loves belly rubs.
If you’re interested in giving Miss Belle the forever home she needs and deserves, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 631-306-4616. You can also visit their website at http://www.paws-li.org

Sweet Bandit has a sad story to share. He was left at the Babylon Animal Shelter by the only family he’s ever known. This 3-year-old fella is described as a sweet and loving guy who loves to run and play fetch more than anything in the whole world! He is housetrained, knows a ton of commands and just can’t wait to find a home of his own. It takes Bandit time to get comfortable with new people so he would do best in a quiet, low traffic home with older kids and no other pets. Please take the time to meet Bandit. All he needs is a new “leash” on life.
If you are interested in adopting this sweet soul, please contact the shelter’s placement teamat (516)785-5220 or email Adoption@tohmail.org, Foster@tohmail.org or Rescue@tohmail.org.
As always, thanks for reading and please remember to always adopt, never shop…pass it on!
