Santa Paws Is Coming to Town26-Nov-2014 The Cat Care Society’s Santa Paws Festival Returns to Lakewood December 5 and 6
Lakewood, CO – November 25, 2014 – The Cat Care Society (CCS), Lakewood’s cage-free shelter for homeless, abused and abandoned cats, will host its annual family-friendly bake sale and craft bazaar just in time for the holiday season. The Santa Paws Festival, one of Colorado’s most beloved feline fundraisers, returns for two days only this December.
Featuring delicious baked goods, handcrafted items, cat toys and much more available for purchase at the CCS Meow Mart, all proceeds from the Santa Paws Festival benefit cats in need. In addition to scoring holiday treats and unique gifts for that special cat lady their lives, festival-goers can enter a drawing for prizes donated by artisans like Pandora, Trice Jewelers and Laurel Burch. On the second day of the festival, families can ring in the season with face painting and visits with that jolly old elf himself, Santa Paws.
“The Santa Paws Festival is a treasured holiday tradition at our cat shelter,” said Jane Dorsey, Cat Care Society Volunteer Coordinator. “We’re proud to showcase the baking and crafting skills of our amazing volunteer corps, while welcoming the community into our facility to see the important work we’re doing to care for cats in need. Bringing the public into our shelter also helps to encourage cat and kitten adoptions into forever homes, which is our number-one goal at CCS.”
