Slideshow: San Bernardino Humane Society Hosts Annual Fundraiser November 21, 2018 by Karissa Lopez 64 Comments San Bernardino Humane Society hosts an annual fundraiser that includes photos with Santa for owners and pets. Residents of the San Bernardino community line up at the Humane Society to register for their photos with Santa. Jeff Pope from HOT 103.9 hosted the Santa Paws event where he made announcements about the many activities residences can participate in while attending the event Santa Paws. Many event goers dressed their pets in festive attire for their photos with Santa. After attendees selected the photo packages they desired they would head to this table where they would pay. Volunteers and staff worked hard to make sure the Santa Paws event ran smoothly. Once residents paid for their photo packages they turned in their slip to the office for the photographer. Many residents of the San Bernardino community are waiting for their turn with Santa. Mari Sarabia took photos of the pets with Santa herself while her three helpers printed photos and helped with getting the pets attention. Attendees could be in the photos with their pets if they wanted to or pets could be photographed alone with Santa. When residents weren’t waiting in line for photos they could enjoy the many vendors at the event which included a bake sale. The bake sale offered a Buy 2 Get 1 Free all day special on their baked goods for the Santa Paws event. Another activity residents could participate in was their raffle prizes. Event goers carefully decided where to place their raffle tickets in the hopes of winning various prizes for their pets and loved ones. Vendors also had booths which were selling animal accessories to essential healing oils for all event attendees. Residents also were able to get caricatures drawn on site for their furry friend. The caricature cost event goers $15 dollars for a portrait that would last a lifetime. The Humane Society also had a tamale sale where residents could special order a dozen or more ahead of time to take home, but also sold single tamales for the event for $2.50 each. Once the 5 by 7 photos were printed event goers were able to pick them up same day on site at the Humane Society.
