The first annual Santa Paws event was held on Saturday, Dec. 8, at 4 Paws Veterinary Clinic. Islanders came with their critters of all kinds and sizes for a photo with the big man.

Sponsored by Realtor Connie Sorensen and 4 Paws’ owner Teri Byrd, the event raised $300 for Vashon Island Pet Protectors and was well attended.
