Santa Paws is coming to town

SILVERDALE — Kitsap Humane Society will welcome Santa Claus back to visit the fluffier members of your family on Dec. 2, 3 and 10.

The annual Santa Paws event will be 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Dec. 2-3 at Bay Hay & Feed, 10355 NE Valley Road, Bainbridge Island; and from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Kitsap Humane Society, 9167 Dickey Road NW, Silverdale.

Bring your pets for photos with Jolly St. Nick; all are welcome, dogs, cats, reptiles, birds, llamas — even tarantulas.

No pet? Bring your family anyway for photos with Santa, event sponsors say.

Pictures are first-come, first-served. All dogs must be on a leash. Hot cocoa will be available at both events. Photos are taken by Fiona Margo Photography on Bainbridge Island and Four Foot Photography in Silverdale.
