Pictures With Santa Paws 2017 and Collection For Local Animal Shelters

Santa Paws is visiting New Castle, Marion, Muncie and Anderson this holiday season. Be sure to wear your holiday best, bring your pet(s), children or grandchildren and donations to help local pets in need. Santa will visit the four Tractor Supply stores listed below with treats and happiness to share. Pet nail trims will be available for $7.00 per pet.

Our 2017 Mission

Our 2017 mission is to gather as many pet supplies that we can in order to help the dozens of homeless animals waiting to be adopted; will you help us?

Please see the specific items listed for each location as they all have different needs at this time. However, feel free to donate what you can (even one can of pet food will help a shelter animal). Also, if you have used crates or kennels that are in good condition that you’d like to donate, we’ll find someone that can use them.

We’re collecting pet food, canned pet food, pet toys, pet treats, new/used towels, blankets and pillows for the dogs and cats at Marion Animal Care & Control.  (The concrete dog enclosures are really cold and the blankets and pillows keep the dogs more comfortable. The stainless steel cat cages aren’t very warm either and smaller towels and blankets are used to help keep them warm and more comfy.)

$10 covers the photography fee, printed image, digital images and copyrights to your photos.

You’ll receive all digital images, one printed copy of your choice and a Christmas picture frame from Tractor Supply.

Please open your heart this holiday season and help make some shelter pets happy. Better yet, adopt, foster or volunteer. All four of these locations have pets that need a little extra TLC while waiting for a new home. They also have pets that would benefit from spending a little time away from the shelter in a foster situation. If you’d like more information about volunteer opportunities talk to us when you come in to the event or contact the shelter directly.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays,
