Santa Paws Fundraiser for Animal Rescue is Dec. 6
Omaha - The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) will hold the fourth annual Santa Paws fundraiser Sunday, Dec. 6 at The Bookworm in Countryside Village, 87th and Pacific Streets.
Pet lovers can bring their furry friends to the bookstore from 1 to 3 p.m. and have a picture taken with Santa Claus for $15. A print copy and CD copy of the photograph are included; all proceeds will be donated to the Hearts United for Animals animal shelter.
“Since opening The Bookworm, we have supported local rescue groups. We’re really excited to be working with Hearts United,” said Diana Abbott, manager of The Bookworm.
Hearts United for Animals is a national no-kill shelter, sanctuary and animal welfare organization dedicated to the relief of suffering. Their major areas of effort are to end overpopulation of domestic animals and the suffering of dogs in large breeding establishments. Hearts United for Animals is a 501(c)(3) organization that receives no government funding and exists solely on donations and the all-volunteer staff.
