Congratulations to Santa Paws Drive!

I am a big fan of animal rescue groups and all the fine work that they do to help pets find homes.

So when Twitter friends @FrugalDougal, @BabyPatches and @YourDailyCute got together to create Santa Paws Drive to benefit 6 different animal shelters around the world, I was thrilled!

It was quite an effort, but they surpassed their goal of raising $3600 in cash and gifts to the shelters! At last count, they had raised $3787!!!

When I first started getting into social media, I had no idea how many great organizations there were doing excellent work on behalf of animals. As an animal artist and an animal lover, I feel truly blessed to have connected with many of these organizations and people working on their behalf.

Many of these people got behind the Santa Paws Drive effort, and they really made the whole event special.

Special thanks go out to the organizers and to those who donated to the cause.

There will be some critters smiling and thanking you this Christmas.

Life is an Adventure!
