GREENVILLE — Community members can get their pet’s picture taken with Santa Claus from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Nov. 17 at Greenville Walmart in the Garden Center.
The Darke County Friends of the Shelter, a 501c3 organization, will take pictures of companion animals with Santa Claus. This is a fun time for everyone to enjoy and a chance to meet members of the Friends of the Shelter. Everyone, including children, aunts, uncles and cousins are invited to have their 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.
Past projects of the Friends of the Shelter include the Scentral Park dog park, an outdoor kennel area to get acquainted with new canine friends (Canine Corral), dog leashes for new dog adoption and new stainless cat cages. This is only a partial list of what the Friends of the Shelter have done for the companion friends at the shelter.

There also will be 2019 Darke County Friends of the Shelter calendars with local pets for $10 available. They also can be picked up at the Darke County Animal 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.
