You will see the location of donation boxes all over the country. If you would like to start your own donation box you can contact the organizer at Justin@JustinRudd.com. You can also print out a flyer, start your own box and donate items for your local shelter. Here is the pdf file for your very own Santa Paws poster: http://www.hautedogs.org/santapawsposter8.5x11.pdf or this one http://www.hautedogs.org/santapawsposter8.5x11.pdf
