Furry tail reunions highlight of pet photos with Santa

One day of picture taking managed to raise more than $1,000 for Langley Animal Protection Society.

Sheena and Louie were among the alum who returned to Langley Animal Protection Society’s Patti Dale Animal Shelter in Aldergrove for the recent photos with Santa.

“There’s no doubt getting to visit pets that were adopted from LAPS as they come in for their Santa photo is always a highlight for our staff and volunteers,” said LAPS executive director Jayne Nelson.

There were 50 animals, including two rats, that came in for pictures.

Others included Peach Fuzz, a cat in LAPS care, that is waiting dental work before seeking a “furever” home.

The sold-out picture-taking event, headed up by 10 LAPS volunteers, raised $1,165 for the shelter.

“It’s one of our favourite events of the year,” Nelson said.
