We need your crafts!

We are inviting Elves of all ages to contribute 5 – 10 new homemade items to our Deck the Paws Holiday Fair on December 7th at the Phoenix Civic Center.

Creative people like you are busily creating animal-themed gifts for us to sell at the Fair. What could you make with animal-print fabric? How about wine bottle covers? Fleece blankets for kitty and doggie beds? Catnip toys? Like to draw? How about unique greeting cards?

We’re hoping to gather up 1,000 items to raise funds to save more animals at the Shelter.

Oh, and as an added bonus, when you donate items, you’ll receive “Doggy Dollar/Kitty Kash” to spend at the Fair.

Friend us on our FOTAS Elves Facebook page.

Send Laura, the event coordinator, an email for more details and to let her know what you’ll be making!

Drop off news:

Drop off your hand-crafted donations at the Jackson County Animal Shelter, 5595 S Pacific Hwy, Phoenix, or at one of the scheduled Drop-Off Days at Phoenix Library, 510 W 1st St. on Monday, December 2 and Thursday, December 5, 1-5PM.

One of our event sponsors, Pronto Print, is offering to donate 10% of every order of customized merchandise, such as canvas wraps of your favorite photos or digitally-printed coffee mugs. Or maybe something you’ll give the items to us for the Fair! Just tell Pronto Print that you want the 10%-to-FOTAS deal.

Great unique gifts for birthdays, Mother’s and Father’s Day AND a generous donation for our shelter animals.

Locations: 9 E 4th Street, Medford, and 1700 Ashland Street, Ashland.
