Holiday Drive

Presents for Paws realizes that donations not only warm and feed hundreds of shelter animals but reaffirm the community’s appreciation to those animal control officers that work twenty four hours a day, seven days a week protecting the welfare of Connecticut’s animals. But we are not done yet. While we support shelters with their immediate needs of comfort for their temporary residents more still needs to be done.

paw Accepted Donation Items
