Grand County Pet Pals plans holiday events

Celebrate the Season by helping those less fortunate. Grand County Pet Pals will be hosting two events to support the homeless animals of Grand County and folks who are struggling to afford feeding their pets. Won’t you open your heart to our furry friends this holiday season?

Pet Pictures with Santa

Bring your kids, cats, dogs, goats or any other critter for a wonderful photo with Santa Paws. The photo can be a great Christmas card or holiday gift. Ho, ho, ho!

Pet Pictures with Santa is fun and inexpensive. Suggested donation is $10, and participants will receive a photo of the best shot from your sitting emailed to you by Dec. 10. Just in time to make those holiday cards.

There will be delicious desserts as well. Photography services are kindly and generously donated by Art Ferrari.

Pictures will be taken from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 6, at the Granby Community Center.

Max’s Full Belly Deli Pet Food & Shelter Litter & Treat Drive

Pet Pals is teaming up with Max’s Full Belly Deli, Grand County’s only pet food bank, to collect food for folks struggling to feed their pets. We will also collect kitty litter and cat or dog treats for our furry Shelter residents.

Come to City Market in Granby and buy a bag of cat or dog food, kitty litter or treats and help an animal in our community. If you can’t make it to City Market, consider getting these items from any one of the wonderful pet supply stores in Grand County and bringing to the Shelter. Cash donations always welcome too.

The Pet Food & Litter Drive will take place at Granby City Market on Sunday, Dec. 14, from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

For information, visit or call the Grand County Animal Shelter, 970-887-2988.

Thank you for your support of Grand County Pet Pals and its mission of promoting responsible pet ownership through animal health and education programs and spay/neuter of pets in Grand County. Happy Holidays to you and your family from Grand County Pet Pals.
