Puppies get picture taken with St. Nick

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - People and puppies lined up at Petsmart stores all around the country this weekend to get their pictures taken with Santa "Claws."

The folks at the Pender Endangered Animal Rescue had a photo session with the jolly old elf this weekend. It's a fundraiser they do every year at Petsmart as a fundraiser for animal rescue groups.

P.E.A.R. and other rescue groups say they are at the store every weekend to help put animals in loving homes.
