We have to do these Christmas shopping anyway, why not help the animals while we’re at it? Many charities offer unique, beautiful and functional pet-themed gift ideas and pets for everyone on their list. All our purchases through animal charities can bring the mind back to the holiday, while otherwise we risk being sobered by the effort and spending.
You can also call your local organizations if they do not offer online purchases. Many have t-shirts, calendars or other “swag” on sale to raise money, like our British Columbia SPCA. Others bring items specifically for the Christmas season only, such as animal calendars.
If you do not find anything to buy for that special person, you can always make a donation in his name.
Note: we have updated the list for your convenience by removing the stores that are no longer in operation.
