Santa Claus will make a special appearance at The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel’s “Howl”-iday Celebration on Saturday, December 1 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. This festive gathering of canines and their companions provides Fido with the opportunity to be photographed with the “Big Dog” himself – Santa Claus. Photos with Santa are $10 per canine.

In keeping with the resort’s Season of Giving and to help deck the halls of the Laguna Beach Animal Shelter, guests are asked to bring unopened canned or dry dog food, treats or dog toys to be donated to the Shelter. These items will provide support and comfort to the canines that have not yet found forever families and will be celebrating the holiday season at the Shelter.

Yappy Hour is part of The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel’s Community Footprints program. It is an event that brings the local community together, but also generates awareness and support for charitable causes. The Laguna Beach Animal Shelter serves the residents of Laguna by providing temporary care for lost, stray and sick or injured animals rescued by Animal Services Officers within the city limits. At any one time, the facility houses dogs, cats, and a small number of other animals. Dogs and cats that remain unclaimed are seen by a veterinarian, bathed and groomed, vaccinated, micro-chipped and neutered/spayed and then put up for adoption. The aim of adoption is to place the animal in the most compatible situations possible and ensure an appropriate match between pet and owner.
