Joplin Humane Society Holiday Open House

JOPLIN, MO -- Old Saint Nick cuddles up with some furry friends at a Joplin Humane Society event. Pets of all ages hopped on Santa's lap for Christmas pictures at the Adoption Center's holiday open house this afternoon. People also showed up with their pets for tours, refreshments, and adoption specials.

Organizers say they held the event to bring attention to the pets up for adoption.

"It just encourages more people to come in, who then realize what wonderful pets we have, and that helps us find pets homes," said Lysa Boston, Shelter Manager.

Following the open house, pet owners honored their furry friends with a tree-lighting ceremony.
