It is with great pride and excitement that we announce that our staff have chosen Lowell Humane Society as the Wignall Animal Hospital Santa Sunday Recipient 2016. Santa Sunday is an annual charity event run by our staff one day every year. Centered on the Christmas holiday and “pet photos with Santa”, the day is the end result of a 3 month-long fund raising effort by our staff.
Each year, staff choose an animal-related charitable organization to be the recipient of all the proceeds raised through this effort. The hospital covers all the expenses, the staff donate their time at the event as well as homemade appetizers and baked goods. Top off the afternoon with a professional photographer snapping photos of clients’ pets with Santa, add lots of holiday spirit and you’ll attend a truly fun and rewarding event. We work closely with several local shelters, rescues and animal control, therefore our staff see quite a bit of animal hardship. This year, they have chosen LHS because our staff have seen firsthand how their good work has helped thousands of pets get a second chance. Some of them—dogs, cats and owners–have heartbreaking stories which makes participation in their care even more rewarding for us as healthcare providers.
Our staff take our Santa Sunday even very seriously! We are not satisfied with the status quo and each year we try to beat our own personal best by raising the bar every year to provide a better event and raise more money. We have grown our in-house Santa Sunday Raffle from 25 items to over 100 and out donations have grown each year! We like to get an early start; therefore we have already begun our preparations for this year’s event and the raffle will run through December to maximize donations.
Lowell Humane Society members will be present at Santa Sunday 2016 to enable event guests to meet them up close and personally; and learn more about the organization and its work. The event is Sunday, December 4, 2016, 12-4pm, at Wignall Animal Hospital. We think you will be impressed by how hard our staff will have worked to prepare for the day and their passion on the day of the event—all to make the event a huge success to benefit LHS which will be our honor.
