Santa Claus Appears in Long-Term Refuge – Dogs Rage on Bag of Goodies
People spend just under $ 1,300 a year on average to pamper their beloved puppies. Now, part of it includes veterinary care and food, but much of it goes to accessories and toys. We love our dogs. They are protective, gentle, funny and faithful to a fault. Especially at Christmas, dog owners do everything they can.
But some dogs do not have the same vacation experience as others. Those trapped in shelters feel alone and forgotten. Thanks to Santa Claus, that change for an animal shelter in Romania. He thinks all dogs should have a wonderful Christmas. So he brings them bags of treats to savor… and my boy, they do.
This tradition has been going on for years.
Every Christmas, Santa Claus visits Sava’s Safe Haven to help shelter dogs get into the holiday spirit. In 2012, a veterinary technician named Alexandra Sava, along with other family members, opened the shelter. Today, it is home to over 250 dogs, cats, rabbits, and birds. For these remarkable people, Christmas is about giving and that includes all four-legged and feathered friends.
For them, the animals in the refuge are more like family.
As the Christmas season begins to intensify, Alexandra’s brother or father dresses up in Santa Claus clothes. As she explained, “We do it because some of the refuge animals have been here for over 6 years. Unfortunately, for various reasons, their chances of adoption are low and they deserve to feel the Christmas spirit! “open next Page To See Video
