The 2nd annual Pets Best “Dog Paws & Santa Claus” photo event was held this past Tuesday evening on November 18th at the Pets Best Insurance Services, LLC office in Boise, Idaho. Community members came to pose alongside Santa with their family members and pets for a $10 donation. The event raised $630, which will be donated to two local Boise-area animal shelters: the Idaho Humane Society and the Meridian Valley Humane Society.

Despite the local Boise, Idaho roads still being covered with packed snow and ice from a recent storm, the pet-loving community turned out to support the two local animal shelters. People and dogs of all ages showed up to pose with Santa, the youngest being a 7 week-old baby boy who was accompanied by his 8 month-old puppy brother, a very large Bernese Mountain Dog!

Many of the dogs that came to get their photo with Santa were adopted from the Idaho Humane Society or the Meridian Valley Humane Society, demonstrating what amazing companions shelter pets can make. Pets Best, a pet insurance agency for dogs and cats is a strong supporter of pet adoption. Over 40% of Pets Best customers adopted their dog or cat from an animal shelter. Not to mention the many Pets Best employee adopted dogs (and occasional cat) who regularly come to work with their pet parent at the Pets Best office.

The Idaho Humane Society is the largest and oldest animal welfare organization and veterinary charity in Idaho, provides a wide variety of services for animals and pet owners. These include a Pet Food Pantry program providing pet food for low-income pet owners and a Rescue Ranch program that rescues and rehabilitates abused and neglected horses.
