Pet pictures with Santa at Paws by the Lake in Avon Lake was a great way to get into the howliday spirit and also do some good for our four-legged friends!
Dozens of pet owners stopped by with dogs donned in their holiday best on Sun., Dec. 8. Proceeds assisted Love-A-Stray, the non-profit, all volunteer, no-kill organization dedicated to helping homeless animals. “We thank everyone who stopped by. We are so grateful to everyone,” said Connie Field, dressed as Mrs. Santa Claus. Special thanks goes to volunteer Santa Tracey Goodwin.
Love-A-Stray’s mission is to assist animals in need to find homes, medical care and more.
“All I can say today is……Love-A-Stray has the most AMAZING volunteers on EARTH. The dogs we save thank the volunteers and supporters from the bottom of their hearts,” said Connie. “Once we catch our breath from one LONG day Sunday, all 39 volunteers will receive a BIG HUGE thank you! But they all know in their hearts, if it was not for their efforts we could not continue our good work saving the neglected, abandoned and forgotten dogs. Thank you for all you do on behalf of RESCUE!” Please visit Loveastraydog.com to find more ways to connect with this community group.
