Tri-County Humane Society Holds 28th Annual Santa Paws Fundraiser [VIDEO]

 

ST. CLOUD — With the holiday’s fast approaching the Tri-County Humane Society will be taking Christmas card photos this weekend as part of their 28th Annual Santa Paws fundraiser.

Housing over 3,500 animals the shelter is holding their annual fundraiser to help raise money for the many pets they look after.

Marit Ortega is with the Tri-County Human Society. She says that you don’t need to have a pet to get your photo taken this weekend.

“We have some great photographers who will take pictures with you and your family, you and your pets and you can even take some with Santa Claus,” says Ortega.

However trying to get the animals to stay still long enough can be a challenge.

“It gets a little crazy on the scene so we make sure we have extra hands to help out.”

If you don’t have a pet and want one in your picture the Tri-County Humane Society will be happy to arrange that.

Ortega says, “We have had many people ask us if they could have a kitten or puppy to hold for their picture and we are happy to make that work.”

The cost for the photos is $35.00 which will get you five pictures on a CD.

If you want your picture taken this weekend you are asked to call and schedule at 320-252-0896.
