Yes, It's That time of year again! The Holidays are right around the corner. It is a time for us to reflect and celebrate the love we share with our family and friends. It also is a time where those who are less fortunate, can be forgotten because of all of the hustle of getting ready for Holiday parties and gatherings, shopping, feasts of food, and lets not forget gift-giving and toys.

Animals in shelters, and those that are homeless, do not have the love surrounding them or a warm place to call home.  Every year over 7.6 Million Animals enter animal shelters nationwide.  Of those, approximately 3.9 million are dogs and 3.4 million are cats.  The Davinci Foundation for Animals through our Presents for paws toy

drive, aims to bring a little bit of joy to these forgotten animals. Every Child deserves at least one gift during the holiday, and receiving a new toy or treat for these animals can brighten their world significantly and even lower stress levels to assist in better chances of being adopted.

In a study published in Bark magazine by Marc Bekoff (a professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Colorado) concluded that"YES animals have emotions!  Just look at them, their faces, tails, bodies and, most importantly their eyes.  Many of us has experienced the smile in the eyes of a child on christmas morning getting their first glimpse of presents under the christmas tree,  Just image what the face of a shelter animal will look like receiving a new gift, a reassurance that someone out there does care, and that they do have hope of having a family once again.  The chances of lowering their stress and could improve their chances of lifting their spirits just enough to shine for that new perfect family!

We thank you for wanting to join us in this time of need. Help us display the true Holiday Spirit and join Presents for Paws!
