Whether naughty or nice, all pets can meet Santa and have their photo taken with him. For a $10 donation to EHS, you will receive a keepsake 4x6 photo; for an additional $10 you can get a CD with the digital files, just in time to create holiday cards with the entire family. Those who don't have pets but still want to bring joy to homeless animals can stop by our Holiday Boutique and bake sale, where gifts for dogs and cats and homemade presents for people and pets will be available.
