Hey there, fellow dog lovers and adventurers! We’re thrilled to have you here with us today as we embark on a mission that’s close to our hearts: spreading love and care to our furry friends in need. At Hike Doggie, we believe that dogs make our lives better in so many ways, and it’s our duty to give back and make sure they’re as happy as they make us. That’s why we’re excited to announce our 2nd Annual Hike Doggie Santa-Paws Shelter Drive – a fun and meaningful way for all of us to make a difference in the lives of shelter animals.
Before we dive into the details of our drive, let’s take a moment to shine a spotlight on the local animal shelter that has inspired us to take action. Our partner in this venture is the Denver Animal Shelter, a safe haven for countless dogs and other animals in the community. They have dedicated themselves to providing love, care, and shelter to these animals in need, and we couldn’t be more excited to help them spread the cheer this year!
But why is it so important to support shelters and rescues in your local areas?
Local animal shelters and rescues are the unsung heroes of the pet world. They often face challenges like overcrowding, limited resources, and the never-ending mission of finding forever homes for their furry residents. By supporting shelters, we can directly impact the well-being and happiness of animals in our community.
When you choose to adopt from a shelter, you’re not only providing a loving home for a pet in need, but you’re also giving them a second chance at a happy and fulfilling life. Plus, you’re freeing up space in the shelter for another animal to receive the same love and care.
Now let’s get into the nitty-gritty of our Santa-Paws Shelter Drive. We are calling on all pet lovers, adventurers, and do-gooders to join us in collecting toys, food, collars, and other essential (and just for extra love) items for the animals at the Denver Animal Shelter.
Here are the details you need to know:
Date: Our drive will kick off on December 10th and run through December 22nd.
What We Need: We’re looking for a variety of items that can make a world of difference to shelter animals. The Hike Doggie team worked directly with the Denver Animal Shelter, to get a list of items they want and need this holiday season! Every item counts, no matter how big or small.
So, how can you get involved and be a part of this pawsome initiative? It’s as easy as a walk in the park:
Throughout the duration of our drive, we’ll be sharing updates and pictures of our donations. We want you to see the impact of your contributions firsthand and feel the warmth of knowing you’re making a difference in the lives of these animals! Hike Doggie is planning on hand delivering the presents, like we did last year. Seeing the joy in those beloved pups’ faces was indescribable.
To stay updated on our Local Animal Shelter Drive and receive regular doses of pet-related goodness, here’s what you can do:
As we go into the winter months with love in our hearts, we want to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of you. By joining us in the Santa-Paws Drive, you’re helping us make a positive change in the lives of shelter animals, and that’s something truly special. Let’s come together, spread love, and show the world just how special animals truly are!
Also, if you are from out of state, there are still ways to help support your local community and the furry friends within it. Consider donating to your local shelters or rescue groups! A little bit can go a long way for many rescue animal havens.
Remember, it’s all about giving back and making sure our furry friends are as happy as they make us.
All Hike Doggies must meet the following requirements to ensure all our doggies remain safe and have an awesome hike:
If your doggie does not meet these requirements, we recommend neutering/spaying (if you are not planning on breeding your cutie) & do targeted training in any area where he/she may need some help so they can enjoy an enriched lifestyle full of outdoor fun with friends!
