Jingle Paws Food & Gift Drive

What is Jingle Paws?
 
Jingle Paws is a food and gift drive fundraiser for shelter and rescue pets in the Sioux Falls area. “Fur” angel trees are placed at participating locations with paper ornaments where the public can take one or more, purchase the item(s) requested by the non-profit and bring it back to place under the tree.
 
Rescue groups and animal shelters have the responsibility of caring for many pets at once. Volunteers put a lot of their own money into taking care of these pets. Especially during the Christmas season, we want to help those volunteers with some of the costs of fostering a pet and also give the dog a fun, new present!
 1st Annual Jingle Paws - donations for Sioux Falls Area Humane Society & Second Chance Rescue Center
The 1st Annual Jingle Paws took place at four locations in Sioux Falls and Brandon. Together we raised money, blankets, dog & cat toys and treats, 85 lbs. of food and kitty litter! All donations went to help shelter pets at the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society and Second Chance Rescue Center.
 
In 2011, we organized the 2nd Annual Jingle Paws with the help of five locations in Sioux Falls and Tea. Food, treats, toys, leashes, collars and even grooming supplies were donated for Northern Plains Boxer Rescue.
 
All Cats Rescue of Sioux Falls was the beneficiary of the 3rd Annual Jingle Paws. Four locations in Sioux Falls and Tea participated in the collection of many items including 60 lbs. of food, 135 lbs. of litter, beds, toys & $220.
 
This last season, the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society was chosen again for the 4th Annual Jingle Paws fundraiser and had five locations in Sioux Falls, Brandon and Tea with fur angel trees. The Sioux Falls Area Humane Society’s wish list this year included more cleaning and office supplies. Check out all those cleaning supplies!!
 
We appreciate everyone who has donated to the Jingle Paws Food & Gift Drive. It makes us so happy to see people come together to help the pets in foster homes or at the shelter!
