Save the date for Santa Paws

What does your dog want for the holidays? If you don’t know, come to Historic Spanish Point in Osprey on Saturday, December 20 where he or she can meet Santa – Paws that is. You and your dog can enjoy the beautiful acres of trails any time between nine a.m. and noon. The caroling canine elves will be on hand, as well as a few of Santa’s rein-dears. Santa Paws will be available for photos from 10 a.m. to noon. Your donation of $5.00 benefits the orphaned pets at the Humane Society of Sarasota County.

On the third Saturday of each month, Historic Spanish Point offers dog owners the opportunity to enjoy the trails at “Pups at the Point.” Dogs must be social to humans and other dogs, well mannered and always kept on a 4 – 6 foot non-retractable leash. Please clean up after your dog, and stay on designated paths.

“Pups at the Point” is always lots of fun, but in December with a visit from Santa Paws, it will really be something to howl about. For more information, call Kate Franklin at HSSC 955-4131, ext 114.
