BATON ROUGE, La. (BRPROUD) — ‘Santa CAAWS’ is coming to town! The Capital Area Animal Welfare Society (CAAWS) will hosts the 29th annual Santa CAAWS fundraiser on Sunday, Nov. 6.

CAAWS was the first non-profit animal welfare organization committed to the well-being of animals in Baton Rouge, founded in 1979.

The fundraiser will feature pets and/or kids to take a picture with Santa, which will be used to support and benefit adoptable dogs and cats in the CAAWS shelter. The program will take place at BREC’s Perkins Road Community Park from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

“Santa CAAWS is our second largest fundraiser each year, and we are thrilled to once again host it at a BREC facility,” CAAWS President Glenda Parks said. “It’s the perfect opportunity for families to have their Christmas cards made. This Santa has been with us for the past few years and does an excellent job with families and their pets. Our photographer is also very experienced with animals, ensuring a pleasant experience for all participants.”
