Second Chance For Animals’ ‘Santa Paws’ Fundraiser Underway

Nugget the chicken was one of the pets brought to the annual Second Chance for Animals’ “Santa Paws” fundraiser.

The annual “Santa Paws” fundraiser benefiting Second Chance for Animals kicked off December 7 at Franklin Middle School – Sampson G. Smith campus.

The event, now in its 19th year, supports the organization which funds the Franklin Township Animal Shelter.

Pets of all stripes and species are welcome, as long as they are on a leash or in a carrier.

For $20, pet owners can have their pets’ pictures taken with Santa Claus, then take home two 4×6 digital pictures or a USB drive with all of the session’s pictures enclosed.

There are also a variety of pet-related items for sale.

The next picture session will be held December 14 at SGS, 1649 Amwell Road, from 10:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
