SANTA PAWS – The dog “Cocoa,” resident at the Trudy Brune Hill Country SPCA on Texas Highway 16 South gets her chance to visit with Santa Claus on Saturday at part of the SPCA’s “Santa PAWS” fundraiser. Families were invited to pose with Santa and their pets. Chris Ward, president of the Hill Country SPCA, said the no-kill shelter exists on donations and thrift store proceeds, but more donors and adoptees are always needed as costs for housing animals continue to rise. The SPCA usually has 25 to 30 dogs on hand, 15 to 20 cats, and in the past has housed a camel, llamas, alpacas, ferrets and parrots, as well as reptilian animals. The Santa PAWS events were designed to raise awareness for the facility. – Standard-Radio Post/Ken Esten Cooke
“Santa Paws” will be visiting the Trudy Brune Hill Country Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals on Saturday, Dec. 21, from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
Santa will be there to pose for photos with families and their pets. Those who have a well-behaved dog or cat are encouraged to bring them to have their picture taken with Santa.
