LANSING, Ill. (November 20, 2021) – For 21 years, Ridge Animal Clinic has arranged pet photos with Santa — a free service for their furry clients. This year the event was scheduled on Saturday afternoon, when the clinic is usually closed, which allowed staff to focus on the photo ops.
Each year, the Santa photos are free, a way to say thank-you and Merry Christmas to clients and friends of Ridge Animal Clinic. Guests are welcome to make a donation to one of the animal-related causes supported by the clinic — Kitties for Keeps or Settlers Pond Shelter. Kitties For Keeps is a no-kill, foster-based cat rescue that finds homes for abandoned, abused, and neglected cats. Settlers Pond Shelter was founded by Roland and Pinky Janota on their family farm in Beecher, Illinois, as a no-kill rescue for “any type of animal in need.”
Settlers Pond Shelter is located at 1301 E Offner Road in Beecher, Illinois. The shelter is open to the public and encourages visitors of all ages to learn about farming, hooded animals, and exotic animals.
Ridge Animal Clinic is located at 3667 Ridge Road in Lansing, Illinois. Call 708-474-3100 for more information.
