'Twas the Night Before Christmas at the Animal Shelter
'Tis the night before Christmas and all through the town, Every shelter is full. We are lost but not found. Our numbers are hung on our kennels so bare, We hope every minute that someone will care.
They'll come to adopt us and give us the call, "Come here, Max and Sparkie ~ come fetch your new ball!" But now we just sit here and think of the days.....
We were treated so fondly ~ we had baby ways. Once we were little, then we grew and we grew ~ Now we're no longer young, and we're no longer new. So out the back door we were thrown like trash,
They reacted so quickly ~ why were they so rash?
We "jump on the children," "don't come when they call", We "bark when they leave us," "climb over the wall." We should have been neutered, we should have been spayed, Wow we suffer the consequence of the error they made. If only they'd trained us, if only we knew... We'd have done what they asked us and worshipped them, too.
We were left in back yard, or worse ~ left to roam... Now we're tired and lonely and out of a home. They dropped us off here and they kissed us good-by.... "Maybe someone else will give you a try."
So now here we are, all confused and alone.... In a shelter with others who long for a home. The kind workers come through with a meal and a pat,
With so many to care for, they can't stay to chat. They move to the next kennel, giving each of us cheer.... We know that they wonder how long we'll be here.
We lay down to sleep and sweet dreams fill our heads.... Of a home filled with love and our own cozy beds. Then we wake to see sad eyes, brimming with tears ~
Our friends filled with emptiness, worry and fear. If you can't adopt us and there's no room at your inn ~ Could you help with the bills and fill our food bin? We count on your kindness each day of the year ~
Can you give more than hope to everyone here?
Santa Paws Drive mission is to bring these lonely shelter animals a little cheer, a little love and a few gifts this holiday season. If you can spare a few dollars to donate or toy or donate some money, the animals will surely appreciate it.
