Santa’s Helpers Will Deliver Pets Christmas Morning

Any pet adopted from the shelter December 17-24 will be eligible for the free Christmas morning delivery (within Williamson County). “Every year,” said Debbie Sims, spokesperson for the shelter, “Santa asks for our help with deliveries in this area. We keep the pets safe and warm until Christmas morning.”
