Santa Paws another success

Thank you to the parents of four-legged family members for supporting the Second Annual Homer Animal Friends “Santa Paws” event on Dec. 14 at the Animal Shelter.

 Homer Animal Friends raised $640 thanks to the generosity of the community at “Santa Paws.” The community “Paws’d” from their holiday pace for this great cause. We had more than 35 registrations with more than 75 dogs, cats and hedgehogs photographed with Santa — many with their two-legged family members. 

A special bonus to the event was many dogs previously rescued from our very own shelter returned for pictures with their “forever” family. Funds raised are already being put to good use for a young cat that will be spayed then adopted. A fun and successful event for animals and people alike — thanks to all.
