Where was Santa Claus last weekend you ask? I'm not sure - he's probably really busy trying to fill all of those orders during crunch time before Christmas Eve. But I can tell you with certainty that Santa Paws was in Killeen on Saturday, hosting the Santa Paws Holiday Market at AmeriStor Self Storage, where families could adopt dogs and cats virtually for free. In case you missed the event, it's OK because it was such a success, they expect to do it next holiday season (and possibly sooner). We know that a handful of these sweet animals from Killeen Animal Shelter, Harker Heights Adoption Center and Fort Hood Stray Facility were indeed adopted over the weekend with all proceeds going to Emancipet in Killeen.

All animals with Killeen Animal Shelter, Harker Heights, Adoption Center and Ft. Hood Stray Facility are up for free adoption until January 2, 2016. Most already have their shots and some are micro-chipped, courtesy of Emancipet.

Visit their website or call Emancipet for more details at (254) 415-4950.
