Hi-Tor Animal Care Center and Camp Venture have partnered to host the first “People & Paws Holiday Extravaganza” for the benefit of both organizations. The family-friendly and fun event on December 4 and 5 will feature a Holiday Village, farm animals, a border collie demonstration, vendor fair, photos with Santa, face painting, hayrides and more.
“ is in great need of financial support, as our government funding has been cut and we are still taking in a record number of animals,” said Roberta Bangs, president of Hi-Tor’s Board of Directors. “Camp Venture is a wonderful organization, and the Therapeutic Equestrian Center has been tremendous in providing therapy to children and adults with developmental disabilities.”
The “People & Paws Holiday Extravaganza will take place from noon to 7 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3, and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 4 at Camp Venture’s Equestrian Program facility at 58 Oak Colony Road in Stony Point.
