Helping Rescue Pups
In my Christmas story, Roger, Colt rescues a little lost pup and through that act of kindness, ensures Colt won’t spend Christmas alone. Each year, millions of pets are lost, abused or surrendered that end up in shelters. Nearly all shelters depend on donations to care for the animals.
During the holiday money can be tight, but there is still a way to help bring “little lost pups” some comfort and fun for little or no money. Do you get a daily or weekly newspaper? Rather than throw them away, donate them to your local shelter.
Do you have old fleece blankets and throws? Turn them into comfy no-sew blankets for a fury friend. Click for Instructions
Chew toys help combat boredom. My daughter and I made a ton of these and I donated the majority to the shelter. I bought old fleece blankets from thrift stores, hit up friends and family for theirs. You could also put an ad out in your local paper or Facebook group asking for fleece donations. From one throw you can make several toys. Click for Instructions.
Of course I saved one or two for my own fur baby. 😉
You can help several ways. Call your local shelter. They are always looking for volunteers to help clean cages, snuggle puppies or walk dogs. Many are also looking for foster moms and dads. Give a little and get so much more in return.
Texas native Colt Burrow isn’t happy about his third cold, lonely Christmas in frozen Michigan. But when fate sends him a gift in the form of an abandoned puppy, he can’t keep his heart from melting. With the puppy’s companionship, he doesn’t feel so isolated anymore, and the holidays don’t seem as bleak. He even finds enough Christmas spirit to take Roger tree shopping. But just when Colt’s starting to hope Roger’s owner doesn’t show up… he does, and Colt doesn’t want to say goodbye.
Will Roger end up being Colt’s Christmas heartbreak… or his Christmas miracle?
