Awesome Shelter Volunteer Made Over 100 Toys to Help Homeless Animals Feel Special on the Holidays!  One Green Planet | December 29, 2017
This video of shelter animals receiving a special Christmas gift will lift your spirits and warm your heart. The toys were handmade by Patty, who works at the Arizona Humane Society as an Animal Care team member. She took it upon herself to make 67 dog toys and 50 cat toys to make them feel as special as they truly are. How adorable is it watching them wagging and sniffing in anticipation?! As if that weren’t enough, Patty also surprised all the little critters with a special treat too – cilantro, carrots, and recycled cardboard! We just love how all the deserving animals, big and small, were included in the festivities. This was truly a beautiful display of love and compassion that certainly didn’t go unnoticed, especially by the animals.
