Animal Tales

Santa Claus is Comin' to Town!

Every year, Father John's Animal House partners with the North Pole to help Santa deliver your new best friend on Christmas morning!

Families with children 12 years old or younger within an approximately 15 mile radius (see map) may indicate if they would like a Christmas delivery if they adopt in the month of December. Start by filling out our pre-adoption questionnaire, and we will set an appointment to come in to meet our animals. If you've found your forever friend, simply discuss this option with the adoption counselor. You can fill out all of the paperwork while you're here, and we will hold the pet for you until Christmas Day. For this special service, we are asking for a donation of your choice in addition to the adoption fee.

There's no place like home for the holidays, so give a home to a loving cat or dog this year!
