The Animal Rescue League of Iowa took some of their resident homeless pets on a shopping spree! They brought each pet out one by one and let them pick out their own toy. Our favorite was the dog who was really into Santa.

We checked with Santa, and he confirmed: All dogs and cats are on the “nice” list this year. The Animal Rescue League of Iowa published an absolutely adorable video this week featuring some of their residents picking out a Christmas toy from underneath the “Tree of Life” — an annual display the organization sets up to help benefit shelter pets.

Cheers to the folks over at the ARL-Iowa for spreading the holiday cheer with this adorable video! We hope all of your lovely animals are adopted.
