With a knick knack, pattywhack – Give PAWS dogs a bone (and cats, too)! This week, we are hosting a toy drive for the animals! This is a fun, easy, and inexpensive way for you and your friends to make a difference for the dogs and cats in our care. Just donate a toy from our Amazon Wish List, and it will be sent straight to us!
We’ve featured a new kind of toy called a “work-to-eat” toy. These toys are fun and challenging to use; the animals have to “work” by playing with the toy in order to release the yummy treats stored inside. View a video of Mr. Chin playing with one! These interactive toys help alleviate boredom and keep the animals in our care happy and healthy while they wait for their forever homes.
From June 17th to June 24th we aim to have 50 dog toys and 50 cat toys donated through our drive, so share this post with your friends and family! You can track our progress with our “Toy Thermometers” below and by keeping updated on Facebook. And please stop by either of our locations to see your gift in action!
Donating a toy to PAWS is easy! If you’re familiar with Amazon, just go to PAWS’ Amazon Wish List and get shopping! Remember to click PAWS LYNNWOOD HEADQUARTERS for the shipping address (This insures that the toys get shipped to PAWS, and not to you).
