Urgent Animals of Hearne will be having their weekly adoption event Saturday, December 9th at America's Country Store on Wellborn Rd.

"We do not have a shelter for these animals as we are a foster based organization," said Deb Fatheree, one of the volunteers.

"This program is done primarily out of a small animal control facility."

Throughout the year Urgent Animals of Hearne has approximately 140 animals in need of adoption or fostering.

Along with the pets available for adoption Santa will be making a visit for a photo op along with his pet pony.

There will be a $10 sitting fee for photos with Santa and all of the proceeds from the photos will go towards the local area pet rescues.

The event will be from 10 a.m. until 1:00 p.m and families should bring their camera with them to the event for their photo.
