ST. CLOUD -- As you begin planning your Christmas cards it's important not forget to include your four-legged family members.

The Tri-County Humane Society is holding their annual Santa Paws fundraising event this weekend. From Friday to Sunday your family can get your picture taken with your pets.

Marit Ortega is with the Humane Society and says they see a variety of pets that make the Christmas card.

"There's been everything from snakes, guinea pigs, chickens, donkeys, we've even had horses ."

This is the 32nd Annual Santa Paws event. The photos cost $39 and all the proceeds go to take care of the animals at the Humane Society.

"It's a really fun fundraiser for us. It raises about $7,000 for the animals and goes to veterinary costs and to spay and neuter the animals before adoption."

Ortega says they have about 12 spots remaining for Friday, and could squeeze a few more for Sunday afternoon.

If you would like to get your picture taken can call the Tri-County Humane Society at 252-0896.
