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.
