Event aims to make sure pets have food year-round

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - Santa Claus is going the extra mile this year to make sure pets have food at the holidays and year-round.

The 4PetsSake pantry is hosting a Christmas event in Mohawk on Saturday. Santa and Mrs. Claus will arrive at 10:30 a.m., followed by several activities.

There will be food, a bake sale with hot cocoa and desserts, an auction and vendors selling crafts, antiques, jewelry and more.

Patrons can also take a picture with Santa in exchange for a small donation toward pets.

"We feed animals year-round, for people who don't have money," said Santa. "Maybe they're coming up short. They lost their job, or something happened to them, or they're a veteran or a senior, just like Santa Claus."

The event runs from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Saturday at the Mohawk Antiques Mall, 100 E. Main St. in Mohawk.
