Tennessee Battery is all about helping out when we can. We’ve made service calls to the middle of a hay field to help a farmer in need or to help someone who is desperate to get to work and their car won’t start, we’ve stood in the pouring rain in Walmart’s parking lot changing out a battery, and financially/product-wise donated to numerous causes and organizations in Dickson and surrounding counties.
But this is one cause that means a great deal to those of us at Tennessee Battery, animal lovers that we are…Operation Santa Paws!!!!
To blatantly and shamelessly copy from daysoftheyear.com, this explains Operation Santa Paws. Please help us help the Dickson Humane Society – the animals (and employees/volunteers) will love you for it!!!! Also, you can drop off donations at Tennessee Battery Sales or at the Dickson Humane Society, Last Chance Pet Rescue, or any of the rescue organizations you prefer.
“Animals serve an important part in our lives, being those friends and companions that give us love unconditionally. They protect our homes, and are there whenever we need them, asking for nothing but love and tenderness in exchange for all they give. Operation Santa Paws Day is a reminder that we need to return that love, and remember them at this most special time of year.
Every year there is a rush of animals that, through abuse and neglect, wind up abandoned in shelters and animal rescues everywhere. All too often they’re given as birthday or Christmas gifts, and simply abandoned as the shine wears off the newest puppy or the kitten gets grown up. Whatever the case, millions of animals world-wide end up in shelters, and there simply isn’t enough resources to support them all. This is where Operation Santa Paws Day comes in.
History of Operation Santa Paws
This holiday was organized by Justin Rudd in 2001, this holiday was originally put together in Long Beach, California to help support their local shelters and rescues. While anyone can choose to participate by donating new toys, treats, food or money to help keep these dedicated servants of the animal public going. Justin has spread his campaign far and wide, getting stores nationwide to participate in this humanitarian effort.
How to Operation Santa Paws
Celebrating Operation Santa Paws days can happen in a number of ways, from those already mentioned to more dedicated efforts. This holiday is about the animals, but without the support of those individuals who love them and dedicate themselves to their welfare, there’d be nowhere for them to go. When you stop by with your donation of supplies for the furry residents of your local shelter, don’t forget to bring down some tokens of thanks for these hard working saviors of our favorite little beasties.”
So…in light of the giving season and the fact that all rescue centers are overflowing this time of year, please help us help the furry friends that help us get through the holidays, tough times, good times, and all times – because there’s nothing like a furry goofball to make you realize life is really, really good….
