Here comes Santa PAWS

The PAWS Humane Society’s annual Santa PAWS event Sunday attracted dozens of pets in all shapes and sizes to have their pictures taken with Santa in exchange for a freewill donation.

Some of the pets were enthusiastic, readily jumping onto Santa’s lap and even offering a few fuzzy kisses, while others needed more coaxing.

Julie Taylor, PAWS director, said 43 pets took part — 34 dogs, four cats, three rabbits and two guinea pigs. The event, held at Otto’s Oasis, raised $278 for PAWS, but Taylor said the event’s purpose is as much just having holiday fun as raising money.
