St. Nick brings smiles to Ann Arbor PetSmart
Pet owners from far and wide have traveled to the Ann Arbor PetSmart to visit with jolly old St. Nick . He came to town early this year to help bring a little joy to pet owners and help raise money for the Great Lakes Rabbit Sanctuary. PetSmart graciously donated all the supplies and provided the location, while volunteers from the Sanctuary showed up to give their time for the event.

A very handsome turtle fully dressed for the occasion,came to see St. Nick complete with antlers! Volunteers even met a 15-month old St. Bernard puppy named Beau and his Mastiff brother, Buddy. Some parents brought in their children with hats, sweaters, coats, even collars with jingle bells.
A great time was had by all. It was exciting to see how friendly everyone was with each other. In all, St. Nick and the volunteers raised close to $1,000.00. Half of the proceeds will go to the Great Lakes Rabbit Sanctuary.
