Pets take photos with Santa and Mrs. Claus for Central Coast SPCA fundraiser

Pets told Santa what's on their Christmas list on Sunday in Orcutt. It was part of the 10th annual Santa Paws fundraiser at Fins and Critters.

Pets got snapshots with both Santa and Mrs. Claus. Even turtles, goats and hamsters took photos with the jolly couple.

The event raises money for the Central Coast SPCA. They say it's important to have an organization like this in our community.

"There's a huge need," Central Coast SPCA President Jeannine Wade said. "We get a lot of calls. I get about 15 to 20 calls a day on people who have neighbors who are either abusing, neglecting, or in some ways not treating their animals as well as they could."

For one dog, the fundraiser was life-changing.

Nine-month-old Foxie was rescued from a Mexican desert. She was found eight days after wild boars attacked her when she was just 12-weeks-old. After eight months of recovery, Foxie is doing much better under the care of Central Coast SPCA.

Proceeds from the fundraiser benefit the Major Medical Fund to help care for animals brought to Central Coast SPCA.
