Pets and Owners Deck the Halls in Region 8

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Pets and their owners in Region 8 decked the halls Saturday, as they got a chance to take a picture with the man in the red suit.

Dogs, cats and even bearded dragons got dressed up in their Christmas attire to take holiday pictures with the white bearded Man. And these pets were smiling with excitement. Santa provided treats and candy for both kids and pets. The proceeds benefited the Northeast Arkansans for Animal's low cost spay-neuter unit.

"We lack just under fifteen thousand dollars to buy the medical equipment needed. The clinic has been built, we have vets donating their time, and all we have to do is buy the medical equipment and then we'll be ready to provide low cost spay/neuters." said Wanda Turner with NAFA.

The clinic is scheduled to open in the spring. The event was sponsored by NAFA and takes place every year.
