The holiday season is upon us, but not every pet gets the love and affection it deserves in wintertime. The most adorable animals are looking for a little joy this season and the Toronto Humane Society Christmas initiative aims to help ensure that their furry friends have what they need with Stocking Stuffers. The animals all have their own stockings set up for donations and treats and are counting on the kindness of others.\nThe THS scheme helps to share the holiday spirit with those unfortunate animals who don't have a place to call home.\n"When you purchase one of our Stocking Stuffers, an animal’s stocking will be filled with festive gifts on your behalf," reads a message of the Society's website.\n"The best part is supporters who purchase stocking stuffers will receive a thank you letter from one of the animals they helped out! There will be adorable pictures of the animal as well," says Tegan Buckingham, a representative of THS.\nSo, you'll be able to feel connected to whichever animal(s) you spoil.\nThe packages range in price from $10 for the little ones to $200 for assorted toys for all the animals.\nSo, you can contribute as much as you're willing and able to, and you'll know your money is making a difference to the animals.\nView this post on Instagram Pet Pics with Santa 🎅 . We had close to 200 people and pets show up to visit with Santa and his elves! Every dog and cat, both naughty and nice, got to tell the Big Man what they want for Christmas. It was an adorably fun and festive affair with enough achingly adorable pics to share on the gram well into the new year. . Not only did your pets get to share their Christmas list with Santa. The amount raised from the event went back to the shelter and the animals in our care. By attending the event, you helped make the holidays a little easier for those who haven’t yet found their forever homes. . On behalf of everyone at the Toronto Humane Society (and everyone at Santa’s workshop), thank you for your support. . And a very special thank you to Santa for spending his time with us!

For many, the holidays are a time of coming together with those we love. Friends, family, and especially our furry companions. But what about animals without a home? They’ll miss out on that warmth, that joy, that spirit of belonging and togetherness. For them, the holidays simply pass them by like so many potential homes. But with our Stocking Stuffers campaign, you can make them feel like they belong, you can remind them they are not alone. . For many homeless animals, the holidays are not much to look forward to. While other animals get to experience the joy and the warmth of the season with their family, homeless animals will be spending it alone, curled up in their beds. They’ll of course get all the love and care from our staff and volunteers. But at the end of the day, it just won’t be the same. Without families to, shelter animals don’t get to experience that sense of belonging that comes with the holidays. . But with Stocking Stuffers, you can help us change that. . Stocking Stuffers is a holiday fundraiser that lets you bring a little holiday magic to homeless animals on the 25th. Instead of waking up to just another morning, they will wake up to a stocking stuffed with toys and treats! We’ve already got their stockings waiting for them. We just need you to fill em! .

Next week, many people and their pets will be basking in the warmth and the joy of the holidays. The kids will be sneaking around looking for their presents, the parents finally relaxing after weeks of planning and shopping. Everyone enjoying the crackling of the fireplace, the smell of the tree, the love and sense of belonging in the air. . What about animals without a home? There is no fireplace for them.
