Stephens County Humane Society has several opportunities to “Have a warm heart for a cold nose” this holiday season, including a photo opportunity with Santa and a supply drive for the shelter.

The organization is offering photos with Santa on Saturday, December 14 from 11am – 1pm at Chisholm Mall in Duncan. Debbie Duggar Visuals will be on hand to take photos of Santa with families and their pets for $10, with all proceeds going to fund Stephens County Humane Society programs. Pets and owners are asked to enter the former Star Pharmacy through the outside entrance because pets are not allowed inside the mall.

“Operation Santa Paws” helps the Humane Society to supply the shelter; donations from the Wish List can be taken to the shelter at 714 Martin Luther King Avenue in Duncan or Billingsley Ford at 3505 North Highway 81. Supplies needed are:
