As part of its effort to provide a safe refuge for our animals, Friends in Need is raising funds for various projects or site needs as a 501(3)(c) charitable organization.

Santa at the Sanctuary

Santa is coming to the Friends in Need Animal sanctuary!

Sign up for a 5-minute time slot with Santa for a $20 donation to the sanctuary. While no professional photos are included, we will have volunteers available to take photos with your cell phone. All proceeds will benefit the animals at the sanctuary.

Payment is due within one hour of sign up. Send your donation to @friendsinneed on Venmo (name is David Curneal) or on our website form here.

This is an outdoor event located on the animal side of our property, so please dress accordingly! There will be snacks and warm drinks available for purchase on site. You will also have the opportunity to buy food to feed the animals live. Bring cash or Venmo.

Please sign up using our form linked below. If you’d like more than 5 minutes with Santa, sign up for two consecutive time slots ($20/each). We will send parking and other information at least one day ahead of the event via email to those who sign up.

P.S. If all times are equally doable for you, we encourage you to sign up for the earlier slots to make room for those families trying to stop by after school.
