Tails Wagging As Santa Paws Comes To Town

Dog lovers will have the chance to let their four-legged friends meets Santa Claws on Saturday and Sunday, with a very special grotto being set up on Mansfield Market Place.

The Grotto will welcome dogs to come and get some fuss from Santa, along with a nice doggy treat – with all funds raised going to the Jerry Green Dog Rescue Charity.

The charity will be present on the day, along with the District Councils Dog Warden Team, to give advice to dog owners and potential dog owners, who often at this time of year, rush into buying a puppy without properly considering the decision.

Julie Snowden is the Town Centre Manager and Said “We want people to be responsible at Christmas and remember that dogs are for life and not just for Christmas, we want people to know the impact of making the right choice because people like Jerry Green Dog Rescue, are the people who end up picking up the pieces and taking the dogs in, so we want people to know what they’re taking on when they make that decision to get a puppy.”

“We’ve also got our dog wardens and neighbourhood wardens there talking about responsible dog ownerships once you’ve made that decision. It’s about making sure that people have fun, you know we all pamper our pets at Christmas, but also that they understand if they are making that decision this Christmas – what that entails.”

The event takes place in Mansfield Market place between 11am and 3pm this weekend with an entrance cost to see “Santa Paws” just £2.
