Our Letter to Santa
From the homeless dogs at Rescue

Dear Santa,

How are you and Mrs. Claus and all of your elves this year? We hope the smell of Mrs. Clausís treats and cookies, and the sounds of the elves whistling Christmas Carols as they ready all the toys is echoing throughout the North Pole.

Grandma and the volunteers are always telling us what good dogs we are and every year you find lots of toys and treats in your magical bag for homeless dogs like us. It is amazing and we are very grateful, Santa. Many of the dogs who come to live with us have never had such delicious treats or cool toys to play with while waiting for our forever homes. Itís fun to see their surprise on Christmas morning and which toys become their favorites. In the past, you always choose appropriate toys for us, the right size and strong enough to hold up to our strong chews. That makes Grandma very happy because toys are cheaper than surgery for a blockage!

You brought us so many toys last year that we think there are other homeless dogs who could use our share instead of us this year. But we would love an extra treat or 2 during the day. Treats are also good for training and rewards after grooming.  We know you have a generous heart, Santa, so our paws are crossed, and we are hoping that we will find some of the items on our Christmas wish lists. And remember, Santa, your elves donít have to wrap anything. Itís easier on Grandma and the volunteers and safer for our friends who like to eat paper!

You also know, Santa, we are orphans, and realistic enough to know that some of us may never find our forever home.  We are always thankful for anything you bring us. As Grandma says, it is not polite to beg or be greedy. We have heard volunteers talking about sending money or gift cards to their grandchildren because they are not sure what to buy them and we have learned to shop on the internet, so if itís easier Öwe love to shop on the internet!!


Thank you very much, Santa, for reading our letter again this year. We sure hope Mrs. Claus can bake us extra yummy treats this year. Of course, we will gladly settle for store bought treats and biscuits and we have even put a list of a few of the treats we like and a few of the stores that sell them to make your life a bit easier. We are not picky so any brand is fine with us.

We wish you, Mrs. Claus, and all the elves a very Happy Holiday!

Hugs, Slobbers, and love from all the VERY GOOD dogs at HHGDR
