We know that Champaign-Urbana loves furry friends. And Santa loves our pets as much as we do! If you want to get your pets up close and personal with the man in the big red suit, there are several options coming up this holiday season right here in Champaign-Urbana and beyond.
Get out your cat elf ears and doggie sleigh bell collars because Santa also wants to know whether Mittens McGee or Sparky The WonderDog has been naughty or nice. Many of these events are fundraisers for local animal-related charities.
