Santa Paws Donation Drive

It's time for the annual FUR Santa Paws Donation Drive!

Add FUR kitties to your holiday gift giving this year! Now through December 28, you can select a FUR kitty and purchase something special from their wish list. Just return the items at one of our drop-off locations around town. And if you're looking for an easier way to help this holiday season, we've got that covered for you, too!

1. At select locations around town, we have put up small Christmas trees with kitty "ornaments", detailing our precious FUR babies and what they are hoping for this Christmas. Simply take a card, buy a gift and return the item(s) to one of the designated drop-off locations.

Trees are located at:
Smoky Mountain Dog Bakery
FUR Store at The Big Red Barn Antique Mall of Waynesville, NC *
Maggie Mountain Fitness
Balsam Animal Hospital *
Maple Tree Animal Hospital *
Bosu's Wine Shop
Mast General Store
Maggie Valley Rendezvous
Animal Hospital of Waynesville

Locations with an " * " have agreed to serve as drop-off locations as well.

2. Fulfill a wish from the warmth of your home! Order from the Amazon.comwishlist "Feline Urgent Rescue" in Waynesville and ship directly to our Sanctuary. 

3. Give the gift that keeps on giving! Make a cash donation via PayPal or check. Visit for more info.

Thank you to all of the businesses who have agreed to participate this year!
