Bark bark, Santa


The animal rescue group, ARF, had fundraiser doggie visits to Santa at the Three Rivers Tractor Supply Company. A long line of enthusiastic owners and their dogs waited in a line, the dogs investigating any treats on display on low shelves. Here, a smiling Rottweiler has his photo taken with Santa.

ARF does many things for animals in the county, such as spay-neuter financial assistance, listing a "pet of the week" needing adoption in local papers, and emergency veterinary assistance. One wonderful service is providing food and bedding for the animals of people who are financially stressed, allowing the people to keep their pets. To read more about ARF go to their website, http://arfund.homestead.com/arf.html. If you want to donate, they take PayPal...

We saw people here taking their dogs to see Santa and it wasn't for charity. Hmm...never crossed my mind.

That's a new one...I mean, the malls are full of parents with their kiddos waiting to take pictures with Santa, but dogs? Funny!

Sounds like ARF does a good job! I like the name, too!
