Small gifts, big impacts

This weekend is a special one for Woodford Humane - we call it Santa Claus for Paws. Our staff and volunteers will be spending lots of time at Kroger here in Versailles, distributing wish lists and collecting donated items to restock our essential supplies. From cleaning basics to treats and toys, we’ll come together with our community to restock the shelves at the Adoption Center with the items we rely on every day to help take great care of hundreds of pets. Here’s the thing that’s really special about Santa Claus for Paws; almost anyone can be a part of it. As a nonprofit on a tight budget (with lots of mouths to feed), fundraising is something we’re always working on. But giving a monetary gift, or buying a ticket to a big event, can be daunting for many who are looking for ways to give back but are on tight budgets of their own. Santa Claus for Paws is a way to get involved that won’t break the bank; it’s a lot of small gifts, like a bottle of hand sanitizer or a couple cans of cat food, adding up to make a big difference. Many items don’t even need to be new; gently used toys, collars, blankets and towels that you no longer use will find new life at Woodford Humane. If you stop by Kroger this weekend and meet our volunteers, please consider picking up an item or two off the wish list. It may not seem like much, but to us, and to our pets, you’ll be a part of something big. To check out the wish list in advance, head to woodfordhumane.org and look for Santa Claus for Paws on the home page.
