Project Santa Paws

Ohio Advocates for Companion Animals is helping out our four-legged friends this holiday season.

The group is collecting pet food (unopened and unexpired), treats and toys, cat litter, collars and leashes, blankets and beds, and cleaning supplies, which will be donated to the Emergency Assistance Center Food Pantry and City of Cleveland Kennel.

Drop off donations through Dec. 17 at one of the following locations:
  • A Balancing Touch Wellness Studio, 32417 Vine St., Willowick, OH 44095, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday (closed Sunday and Monday)
  • Best Friend Self Serve Dog Wash, 640 E. 185th St., Euclid, OH 44119, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, or 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday (closed Sunday and Monday)
  • Herchick's Tire Service Inc., 854 East Aurora Road, Macedonia, OH 44056, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday (closed Sunday)
  • Pet People (Chagrin location only), 27299 Chagrin Blvd., Woodmere, OH 44122, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Saturday, and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. Donations will be accepted through Dec. 10.

Anyone who would like to donate but cannot make it to one of the above locations can make other arrangements with OA4CA by emailing or calling 440-382-8983.

OA4CA will deliver food donations to the Emergency Assistance Center food pantry at 1 p.m. Dec. 19, and other items will be delivered by Santa to the City of Cleveland Kennel at 1 p.m. Dec. 22.

On OA4CA's event page for Project Santa Paws, the group says donations will help families who have had to give up pets during the difficult economic time, and will help homeless animals in the area.

I found this item on Thoughts Fur Paws, so head over there to read Jamie Lynn's post.
