Santa Paws event benefits no-kill shelter
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Children aren't the only ones lining up to pose with Santa Claus this weekend.
Pets are also telling the big guy what they want for Christmas and Saturday, their owners took them to the Valley Animal Shelter to take a picture with St. Nick himself.
This is the third year the shelter hosted its Santa Paws photo session with all proceeds going to the no-kill shelter.
"Santa said he had more than 50 animals sit on his lap, which is a great boost from last year. So we were very excited about how many people came," Brittnee Maxfield said.
In addition to the Santa photos, Saturday's event also featured a craft, baked goods, and book sale so people could get a head start on their holiday shopping for both people and pets.NEWS BY LOCATION | ABC30 BLOGS | DISCUSSION FORUMS
