Ho! Ho! Ho! Santa Paws a success


Thank you to the parents of four-legged family members for supporting the Homer Animal Friends’ “Santa Paws” event on Dec. 15 at the Animal Shelter. 

We had close to 25 dogs and cats photographed with Santa; many with their two-legged family members. Christina Whiting, a local professional photographer, donated her time to take hundreds of photos bringing smiles to all who attended. A big thank you to Christina.

Homer Animal Friends raised approximately $300 thanks to the generosity of the community at “Santa  Paws.” Because of the event’s success and community support we plan to continue the event for years to come. A bonus to the event was two adoptions. 

Rose Violet, a shelter puppy selected by a family to sit with their adorable daughter, now has a home. Roman, a St. Bernard mix and featured pup, also was adopted. We think pictures of his happy face and big hanging tongue made him too hard to resist.

A fun and successful event for animals and people  alike —  thanks to all.
