Santa brought these pups some howl-iday cheer!

Festive furballs and their owners bundled up and braved the snow on Dec. 9 for some face time with Saint Nick, who stopped by a Windsor Terrace shelter to lend his lap to creatures great and small begging for an audience and photos with the jolly old elf, according to an attendee.

“She loved it a lot,” said Michelle Addo, who brought her four-legged friend Ava, a Chihauhau–dachshund hybrid known as a chiweenie. “It was a bit cold, but she loved the pic.”

Around 70 people paid $20 to go to the fund-raiser hosted by Sean Casey Animal Rescue, according to a shelter volunteer, who said the price of admission included free treats for pups that waited patiently for their turn with Santa Claus, which were a hit among some of the spirited canines in attendance, according to Addo.

“Ava was a big fan of the treats,” she said.

And many mutts sported their finest holiday attire for the occasion, some channeling Old Saint Nick himself in red-and-white suits.

“It was funny to see dogs dressed up in Santa costumes,” said Tim Baker, whose Chihuahua mix Benny — adopted from Casey’s rescue — was also clad in seasonal garb.
