Santa Came to Cherokee Humane Society!
November 29,2016

Santa comes to the humane society every year and talks to all the good little cats and dogs to see what they want for Christmas. They always are looking for a new home but their are also many who have found that forever home, who come to see the big guy and tell him their furry fantasies! This year was a great turn out, thank you to all who came out. Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night! 

Please visit Santa Steve's Facebook Page and show santa some love
