On Saturday, December 7, 2013, Morrisville First will participate in Morrisville’s annual Winterfest Parade by entering a Candy Land themed float. In addition, Morrisville First will be selling Pet Paws at $1.00 each to place on the float so people can honor their pets. The proceeds from the Pet Paws will go to local pet rescues and shelters in conjunction with our Santa Paws event.
On Saturday, December 14, 2013, Morrisville First will be sponsoring the 4th Annual Santa Paws event. People can have their pet’s picture taken with Santa and Mrs. Claus. The event will be held at the Morrisville Ambulance Squad located at 139 N. Washington Street from 11:00am to 2:00pm. A $2.00 donation is suggested.
During the holiday season, extra help is needed for the thousands of abused and abandoned animals in the care of local animal shelters and rescues all over the world. Morrisville First and Santa Paws are helping by spearheading a canine/feline toy/treat drive to benefit the less fortunate pets this season. This annual holiday effort that started in 2010 is encouraging animal lovers to purchase pet food, treats, blankets, towels, wash cloths, bleach and other cleaning supplies to drop-off and donate at our Santa Paws event that will be delivered in time for Christmas to shelters and rescues.
Morrisville First will also sponsor a writing contest. This year’s contest is about your imaginary pet. If you could imagine any animal at all, what would you pick for a pet? Would it be a pink unicorn or maybe a green hippopotamus? This contest will be open to grades K-5.
