You better not bark; Santa Claus is here to take photos with your pets
EUGENE, Ore. - You better not bark this holiday season, because Santa Clause is in town, and he's taking festive photos with furry friends.
On Thursday night, Santa made a stop at the Fifth Street Public Market in downtown Eugene to take pictures with visitors and their pets as a benefit for Greenhill Humane Society and First Avenue Shelter.
While families got their professional photos taken, officials with the humane society were there to answer questions on volunteering and fostering, and they even saw a few familiar faces.
"Our hears are absolutely filled with joy this time of year knowing that we've helped thousands of animals each and every year here in Lane County find new loving families once they've been adopted," said Sasha Elliot, Community Engagement Manager with Greenhill. "We're also helping animals who have been lost become reunited with their families."
If you missed out on Thursday's event and would like a pet photo with Santa, you can visit the Valley River Center on Monday between 5 and 8 p.m.
And if you'd like to help a shelter pet, there are many ways to do so. To find out more, you can visit www.green-hill.org.
