A fun event in aid of local dog rescue charity MADRA will take place at Dangan Nurseries this Saturday and Sunday (December 6 and 7 ) from 12-4pm.
Santa and his team of puppy elves will be taking some time out of their busy schedules to pose for photos with the boys and girls who come along on the day. Dogs are also welcome and Santa will pose for photos with four-legged visitors too.
This event is a free event but visitors are encouraged to donate to MADRA in return for their photo with Santa or one of his adorable puppy elves.
Commenting on the event, Santa said: “I’m bringing my puppy elves with me on the day in order to help raise funds for all of the other dogs and puppies out at MADRA.
“Puppies are a lot of hard work so I’d like to remind the boys and girls, and their parents, to think carefully about the responsibility involved in getting a dog and if they are ready for the commitment to make sure to consider a rescue dog”, he added.
MADRA is a volunteer-run charity dedicated to finding new homes for dogs of all shapes, sizes and breeds. Last year the charity rescued 832 dogs and pups from a variety of sources – the majority from local authority pounds.
