17th Annual Santa Sunday 2011 Recipient Chosen


Each year the Wignall Animal Hospital and Lowell Veterinary Clinic Staff screen and evaluate local animal organizations, rescues and shelters for consideration as the annual Santa Sunday Recipient. Santa Sunday is a month long fundraising effort by Wignall Animal Hospital/Lowell Veterinary Clinic, which culminates with the Santa Sunday event, a free one-day of holiday festivities including professional carolers, Santa, endless home-made refreshments and take-home goodies for pets…and of course, the coveted professional photographs with Santa and your pets! The 2011 Santa Sunday Raffle boasts over 100 prizes and features a wide array of items including KSS108 JINGLE BALL TICKETS, HOTEL/AMUSEMENT GIFT CERTIFICATES, PET ARTISTRY, pet related gift baskets, all kinds of gift certificates to local businesses and more! All proceeds go to the Santa Sunday Recipient Organization. Our annual event is a wonderful way to have some family fun, take home a photo of Santa with your pets and help a very deserving cause: animal rescue and adoption.

As always, our staff considered the needs of local pet rescue organizations, their role in the community, their contributions to the stray animal populations in our community and their partnership with Wignall Animal Hospital and Lowell Veterinary Clinic. In 2011, the staff have decided to champion a local Dracut rescue organization, Pets In Need Rescue, a “no-kill” rescue that functions completely on donations. They work tirelessly to educate the public about the woes of unwanted, abandoned and lost pets; and equally as hard to place those that are adoptable into good new homes. Their job is endless. The thanks often only a wagging tail or a kiss. Their costs are high and their staff are often few. Volunteers are critical and paid staff work long hours at jobs that are both physically and emotionally taxing. They are real heroes to all who love their pets!

Come join us for this fun event at Wignall Animal Hospital, 1837 Bridge Street, Dracut on Sunday, December 4th, 12-4pm. Free Admission and activities. Professional Photography by Natural Expressions, Dracut. Photos with Santa make fantastic holiday gifts! ($12 each). Don’t forget the Santa Sunday Raffle -over 100 prizes! All proceeds will go toPets In Need Rescue, our 2011 Santa Sunday Recipient.
