He’s making a list and checking it twice to see who’s been naughty or nice. Santa’s getting ready for his big delivery date — but what about the animals? They’ve all been good, of course, and deserve some holiday treats. Want to help? The cats, dogs and other animals have some suggestions of items to donate, which can be done with just a few clicks of your mouse.
