9th Annual Holiday Drive!
2016_p4p_holiday_drive_poster_web_reminder
We have seven locations helping us collect supplies for our state’s shelters this year!  If you are unable to drop off a donation but would still like to contribute, please consider shopping at Amazon Smile and choosing us as your charity of choice, or you can donate directly online on our Website!

How it works:  Our business supporters allow us to use their lobbies and offices for the public to drop off donations.  Then they coordinate pick ups with our volunteers who then sort and re-distribute the donations to shelters throughout the state.  We really can’t believe we are in our 9th year and still going strong.  Thank you for your continued support.  This happens because of you!

8th Annual Holiday Drive
For the past 8 years we have had the good fortune of support from local businesses and you, our community, donating countless supplies for our shelters.
How it works:  Our business supporters allow us to use their lobbies and offices for the public to drop off donations.  Then they coordinate pick ups with our volunteers who then sort and re-distribute the donations to shelters throughout the state.  We have had tremendous fun doing this for 7 years and now we are in our 8th!  So thank you all for your continued support, this wouldn’t be possible without you.

For more information please go to our “Holiday Drive” drop down box under “Get Involved” for what we have collected during this drive, what we need, and where you can drop it off.

Paying it Forward
Presents for Paws along with a great group of volunteers will be installing the shelter’s new sign on this day.  All proceeds raised from this day’s event will go to the East Haven Animal Shelter’s Pavilion Project.  They are in need of seating (i.e. picnic tables) so we hope to raise enough to cover the entire cost (TBA) of those seating supplies.
