Santa, Mrs. Claus making an early delivery at animal shelter in Hartselle

By Ronnie Thomas · 340-2438

HARTSELLE — Some might not expect Santa and Mrs. Claus to be hanging out at an animal shelter.

But that’s what the jolly pair will be doing here Friday afternoon from 1 to 3 as they hand out early Christmas treats for the animals at the Morgan County Animal Shel-ter at 100 Lovelady Street, according to director Claudia Ray.

Ray said she hopes residents will take the opportunity to bring their children to the shelter, not only to catch a glimpse of Santa, but to select a pet for a Christmas present as well.

“We have about 30 animals now, a mix of dogs and cats,” she said.

“This is an ideal time to come and see about adopting one. Folks can adopt a puppy for $20 and grown dogs for $40, and that includes a rabies shot.”

Ray said that any puppy over three months old must have a rabies shot.

Also, Ray said, Alabama law mandates that owners must have their pets spayed or neutered.
