A ‘Santa Paws’ Christmas For PetConnect

A ‘Santa Paws’ Christmas For PetConnect

Bring your smiling pet and all the children to meet Santa for a  Christmas photo.

PetConnect, Potomac's animal rescue organization, will hold its first "Santa Paws" Christmas children's event for families and their pets  to meet and be photographed with Santa at the Potomac Community Center, 11315 Falls Road, Potomac. on Saturday, Dec. 16 from 1-4 p.m.

This fundraiser will benefit PetConnect and its efforts to rescue  needy cats and dogs and place them in loving foster homes until  permanent adoption.

The event will feature refreshments, a silent auction, entertainment  and, of course, a Santa waiting to be photographed with the children and their pets.
