Thank you to everyone who ordered a stocking or got their picture taken with Santa. We had great success with both events!

Kuranda Bed Donations
Kuranda pet beds are very durable, easy to clean and comfy for pets. APAWS is now registered with Kuranda's donation program. All of our animals live in foster homes, but they still like having a bed to call their own! Our foster parents provide blankets and beds for their fosters, but these are generally difficult to clean and wear out too easily. Our foster animals and foster parents would greatly appreciate a donation of a Kuranda pet bed. Please visit http://kuranda.com/donate/5762 for information on donating a Kuranda pet bed.
