Metro area pets are hoping to have a merry Christmas though donations from Santa Paws.
The New York City agency that cares for homeless animals is begging for a visit from Santa Paws.
Animal Care & Control will launch a holiday donation drive on Monday. Suggested gifts: a can of dog or cat food; a new or gently used dog toy; a blanket or a towel.
Director Richard Gentles asks that, "In the spirit of holiday giving, people take a look through their pantries and closets to see if there is anything they are no longer using that would provide much needed warmth and comfort."
Drop-off locations will be set up around the city.
The agency is also hoping for the biggest gift of all: new homes for the pets. Adoption fees start at $25.
