Thank you to our supporters and new donors who participated in our 6th year for the PHOTOS WITH SANTA PAWS. It is one of our favorite fundraisers for the year.  It is a great opportunity to have that perfect shot of your animal with Santa and help the local homeless animals.

We raised nearly $6,000 with our two days of photo shoots….. 

 Our special thanks to the following for sponsoring the 2018 event:


Marbles & Freckles

Does your dog dream of a new toy?
