by Madison V. Fisler

Dec. 5, 2013. A second Santa Paws session and the annual Open House will be held at the Irma Baker Lyons Adoption Center Saturday, Dec. 7 from 1-4 p.m. 

Santa and GoldieSanta Paws is an annual event that invites local animal lovers to bring their four-legged or two legged loved ones to enjoy a night of holiday fun and have their family and pet portraits taken with Santa and Mrs. Claus. Soft drinks and hot cider will be served for your enjoyment.

The event will be held in the Irma Baker Lyons Adoption Center at 312 Paws Way in Boone. The event is free to the public with photographs available for $20 or $10 for students. 

A bake sale will offer specialty holiday treats and homemade dog treats for you to purchase, the SNIPS Homecrafted Holiday Sale will be up and running for you to gather gifts for friends and loved ones, and stockings will be strung throughout the facility welcoming donations of toys and treats.

Don’t forget to bring donations of toys, treats, blankets and food to stuff an animal’s stocking.

All proceeds from the event benefit the animals at the Adoption Center and strengthen the programs offered to the local community by the Watauga Humane Society.
