Santa pics with pets offered


GREENVILLE — Pet owners can have their pet’s picture taken with Santa Claus Nov. 21 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Greenville Walmart in the Garden Center.

The Darke County Friends of the Shelter, a 501(c)3 organization, will be taking pictures of companion animals with Santa as a fundraiser and to meet the community. Everyone, including children, aunts, uncles and cousins are invited to have his or her pictures taken. The cost is $4, and the proceeds help the dogs and cats at the Darke County Animal Shelter as well as the Scentral Park dog park and support the many endeavors of the Friends of the Shelter.

Walmart will offer a photo package deal for Christmas. All pets must enter Walmart through the Garden Center entrance and must be on a leash or in a pet carrier. There will also be 2016 calendars available.

For more information, contact the Animal Shelter at 937-547-1645 or stop by the shelter at 5066 County Home Road, Greenville, just beyond the Sheriff’s Office.

Past projects of the Friends of the Shelter include the Scentral Park dog park, an outdoor kennel area to get acquainted with a new canine friend (Canine Corral), dog leashes for new dog adoption, and new stainless cat cages, and more.
