Tails will be wagging in yards across southeastern Virginia and northeastern North Carolina, thanks to PETA’s Christmutts Toy Drive. Caring community members have already started filling our local donation bins with squeakies, stuffies, and other toys to bring joy to lonely dogs who are forced to live outdoors 24/7 in areas where continuous chaining and penning remain legal—and with just a few clicks, you can lift these dogs’ spirits, too!

With even just one donation, compassionate folks like you can help PETA’s Community Animal Project (CAP) lift a sad dog’s spirits this holiday season. Fieldworkers see it every day: A toy to chew or cuddle with can make a world of difference for dogs like Ivy …


… or Brassy:

If you’re a local resident of the Hampton Roads area in Virginia, you can drop Kongs or sturdy plush playthings into our donation bins located at any of these stellar locations:

  • Boutique on the Creek (21088 Marina Rd., Ste. 100, Carrollton)
  • CLTRE (208 E. Main St., Norfolk)
  • Elation Brewing (5104 Colley Ave., Norfolk)
  • Ghent Veterinary Hospital (939 W. 21st, Norfolk)

  • My Vegan Sweet Tooth (3916 Virginia Beach Blvd., Virginia Beach)

  • Naro Expanded Cinema (1507 Colley Ave., Norfolk)
  • Zeke’s (800 Granby St., Norfolk; 616 Norfolk Ave., Virginia Beach; and 517 Kempsville Rd. Ste. E, Chesapeake)

Your generous support will allow CAP to continue its vital work to make life a little less miserable for deprived dogs, many of whom suffer alone with no love, joy, or stimulation, day in and day out.

CAP fieldworkers always urge people to let their dogs live indoors and to treat them as family members or to relinquish ownership and allow PETA to give them a chance at finding the permanent and loving adoptive homes and families they deserve. When owners refuse, fieldworkers ensure that dogs forced to live outdoors have food and water, replace heavy chains with lightweight tangle-free running lines, stuff doghouses with straw in the winter, provide flea and tick preventives during warm seasons, transport animals to and from their no-cost spay and neuter appointments (for surgeries that PETA’s mobile clinics also provide free of charge), and so much more.

And thanks to generous Christmutts Toy Drive donations, hundreds more neglected dogs like Legend …
