Nov. 9, 2011 - PRLog -- Many of us shop for holiday gifts to give to our wonderful canine and feline companions during this time of year. Edamame Kids, eco-friendly baby boutique in Calgary, wants to extend that holiday goodwill to those four-legged (or sometimes three-legged) furry friends that are still living in temporary foster homes or yet to be rescued from the cold.

“We hope that with our Adopt-a-Paw Calgary program, we can help spread some of that holiday cheer to those dogs and cats that are still waiting for their forever homes,” says Amanda Barker, Owner of Edamame Kids.

ARF is a volunteer-based organization and is a registered non-profit charity. ARF rescues dogs and cats from First Nations and rural areas and places them into temporary foster homes where they are vaccinated, de-wormed and spayed/neutered prior to adoption. ARF also provides spay/neuter and educational programs to residents of First Nations communities as part of the effort to reduce the population of unwanted animals.

"The winter months in Alberta are especially trying for stray and abandoned animals. ARF is always at-capacity, and the holiday season is the hardest. Any help, whether it be in-kind or monetary donations, or the gift of time – by offering your home as a volunteer foster home, is greatly appreciated,"  says Julie Bousfield,  Assistant "Pad for Paws" Campaign Chair.

From November 15, 2011 to December 3, 2011, you can drop off donations under the Christmas tree at Edamame Kids in Calgary.

ARF would greatly appreciate any of the following items:
- X-Pens/Puppy Pens
- Unopened Bags of Techni-Cal or Iams (Dry) Kitten or Cat Food
- Unopened Bags of Premium (Dry) Puppy Food
- Canned Kitten Food
- Puppy Collars
- Chewies (pressed rawhides, Dentabones, pigs ears, hooves - but please, no "knots")
- Baby Gates
- New or Gently Used Large Scratch Posts
- Clumping (Clay-Based) Cat Litter
- New Litter Boxes & Scoops

Any donated items that cannot be used by ARF will be donated to a local animal charity.

On Saturday, December 3, 2011, Edamame Kids is hosting a wrap-up party for the Adopt-a-Paw Calgary event from 10:00am to 12:00pm and you will be able to meet some of ARF’s cats and dogs available for adoption.

ARF is a registered charity (#89980-5956RR-0001) and tax receipts will be issued via mail by ARF for any monetary donations over $20 that will support ARF’s Pad for Paws campaign. You can also shop for a specific compassionate gift by browsing ARF's online “Creature Comforts Catalog”. To make an online donation to ARF or to view their catalog, please visit the ARF website at
