DAYCARE for the holidays:

Holiday shopping or entertaining out-of-town family & friends have you away from home a little longer lately?

Come drop your dog off at DePAW Daycare for some much needed exercise and fun with their furry friends. No appointment necessary and rates are hourly, 1/2 day (less than 5 hours) or full day (5-12 hrs).

Holiday Giving Opportunities

DePAW would like to give you some ideas for "holiday giving" to consider that can help our K9's in need in the community.

1. Saveavet.org: Save-A-Vet helps rescue military & law enforcement working dogs & other service animals from being put down when their service to our country & community is done. They also provide housing and relief for disabled veterans who help take care of these service dogs. 501(c)3 charity.

2. H.E.L.P.: Homes for Endangered and Lost Pets -
H.E.L.P. obtains veterinary care, food and shelter for stray and abandoned cats and dogs until they are adopted into loving homes. H.E.L.P. does not have a facility. The animals live in volunteers' homes. Foster care benefits the animal and the potential adopter, as it allows H.E.L.P. to work on health or behavioral issues while providing a safe, healthy, happy environment until a cat or dog is adopted. 501(c)3 charity

3. Anderson Animal Shelter - Supply Wish List on their website. DePAW has always been a drop spot for Anderson Animal Shelter and they are always in need of pet supplies for their wonderful organization. Items can be taken directly to their facilities or dropped off at DePAW inside our lobby at the Anderson labeled collection box for your convenience.

4. MoveAmericaForward.org -K9 Care Packages for Military Working Dog Teams:
Move America Forward recognizes and honors the Military Working Dog as an essential part of the team fighting the war on terror. Since 2010, MAF has been supporting military working dogs and their handlers currently serving overseas by sending specialized K-9 Care Packages.

5. Evanston Animal Shelter: The Evanston Animal Shelter and Adoption Center is committed to providing compassionate and humane care for Evanston's abandoned, abused, and relinquished animals and try to find them homes through rehabilitation, foster care, adoption, and rescue organizations. They aim to further serve the community as a proactive resource for education, counseling, and support.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA) is a national leader in the areas of rescue, adoption and welfare and has worked tirelessly for over 150 years to put an end to animal abuse and neglect. Their nationwide work includes:
  • Saving animals from dog-fighting, puppy mills, hoarding and other cruelty-related situations.
  • Providing animal victims of cruelty with life-saving medical care and behavioral rehabilitation.
  • Helping thousands of animals find loving homes every single year.
  • Responding to emergency situations when disaster strikes.
  • Working with all levels of government to fight for stronger laws to protect animals.
