Christmas gift giving can be creative and fun, but in most cases, it shouldn’t involve animals. Sheridan Media’s Ron Richter has the details.

While giving an animal as a gift, be it a dog, cat, kitten, puppy, or some type of exotic pet, may seem like a thoughtful idea, it typically doesn’t turn out very well for the animal or the recipient.

Sheridan Dog and Cat Shelter Executive Director Julie Chadwick talks about why you shouldn’t give an animal as a gift.

Chadwick says that the shelter has gift certificates available that make a much better gift.

Chadwick said that there is a “Giving Tree” at Muddy Paw Prints in Sheridan if anyone would like to get gifts for the animals at the shelter.

Chadwick said that people can also donate items to the shelter and that bedding for the animals is one of the number one items that they are in need of this time of the year. We’ll have more news concerning the shelter for you in a future story.
