And, when you are finished collecting goods at your location on the date you choose, you can deliver your collected items to your favorite shelter or drop the goods at one of our major drop-off locations (in the Los Angeles/Orange County area) listed below where we'll pick it up and deliver to various local shelters and rescues on the Saturday before Christmas.

community action team justin ruddDURING THE HOLIDAY season extra help is needed for the thousands of lost, abused and abandoned animals in the care of local animal shelters and rescues all over the world. One local grassroots organization from Long Beach, Calif., "Operation Santa Paws," is helping by spearheading a canine/feline toy/treat drive to benefit less-fortunate pets this season. Justin Rudd, organizer of this annual holiday effort that started in 2001, is encouraging animal lovers to purchase a new dog or cat toy, treat or supply to drop-off/donate at one of the locations listed below that will be delivered in time for Christmas to shelters and rescues.

OPERATION SANTA PAWS will be the cat's meow for shelter pets this holiday season, when a brigade of volunteers deliver toys and treats to thousands of animals in shelters all over North America. Can you help out? Contact

OPERATION SANTA PAWS seeks donated pet toys for shelters and rescues to improve the health and demeanor of those pets while reducing their stress to increase the animals' chances of being adopted. The simplest toys can make the animals much more comfortable. Cats enjoy rolling toys, such as small plastic balls or other "batting" toys that can be hung from cage doors, while dogs tend to prefer items like the heavy-duty Kong rubber chew toy.
