HOWARD, WI-- Animals in the area got a chance to get into the holiday spirit for a good cause.
This fundraiser in Howard benefits the German Shepherd Rescue and the Safe Haven Humane Society. Pets and children can take pictures with Santa. There was also a bake sale, bucket raffle and activities for the family.
"The rural communities have a very special need. They have a lot of feral and stray animals that aren't being serviced currently,” said Leigh Ann Wagner Kroening, Safe Haven Humane Society
The money raised will help fund a building to safely house animals that are waiting for a permanent home.
