“Santa Paws” Visits Save-A-Pet on the Sound

held at Save-A-Pet on the Sound on December 7th and 8th.

Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue and Adoption Center, Inc. celebrated the holiday season on Saturday, December 7 and Sunday, December 8 by hosting its annual “Santa Paws” event at the shelter’s retail location, Save-A-Pet on the Sound, in Port Jefferson. Over 100 families came with their furry friends to support Save-A-Pet.

Families had the opportunity to receive photos of their pets and children on Santa Paws’ lap for a low price of $10 and each additional photo for $5. All proceeds went to benefit the shelter and its spay-and-neuter programs.

Attendees instantly received a 4x6-inch printed photo at their visit. Save-A-Pet wanted to ensure that guests could present their endearing photo to family and friends directly after the festive event and in time for the holidays.

“We were overwhelmed with excitement after seeing loving families with their pets at our event,” says Dori Scofield, Founder/President of Save-A-Pet. “We knew it would be a perfect holiday photo opportunity for families because everyone, including pets, would be able to take part.”
