A great big Thank-you to everyone that participated in our Pet Photos With Santa on December 3rd. We collected $435 from this event. The photographer Jerry Serra had generously donated his time for this event, AND he insisted on paying for the photo processing as well. Since there were no costs associated with this event, the entire $435 will be donated to The Lowell Humane Society, Nevins Farm and Billerica Cat Care Coalition to fund these fabulous organizations. Thank-you Jerry Serra for making this all possible!
This week the Billerica Cat Care Coalition will be at the market with adoptable cats & kittens from 11:00 - 2:00. If you are interested in adopting, you can fill out an application ahead of time by clicking the link here.
