Thanks to all of the folks who adopted pets at 2016 Santa’s Pet Village. We know of at least 24 dogs and 4 cats that were adopted, plus many more home visits scheduled.
Over the past 8 years, the 12k’s of Christmas has helped over 1,800 pets find loving homes. Plus we have donated over $80,000 to Maricopa County Animal Care & Control and other animal care organizations.
Please plan to join us for the 2017 event. Maricopa County Animal Care and Control will be on site as well as local rescue groups.
If you have ever thought it would be fun to dance with your doggie, visit the Canine Musical Freestylers. They will be performing at 9:30, 10:30 and 11:30, and invite you to join them between performances to give it a try!

Santa Paws would like to remind you, please, if you are looking for a best friend, don’t buy a puppy mill dog – rescue one in need and give them a chance at a good life!
