Holiday Festivities At Animal Shelter

CHERRYFIELD — On Saturday, Dec. 15, from noon to 2 p.m., Machiasport Girl Scout Troop 717 will host Christmas festivities for the shelter pets at The Ark in Cherryfield.

There will be games geared toward children, face painting and an interactive drawing table. A prize will be awarded for the most colorful holiday drawing of a dog or cat. Refreshments will be served free of charge.

In addition, the shelter will hold a bake sale to raise funds to enrich the lives of the shelter orphans that are awaiting “forever homes.”

Kasey (aka Santa Paws), an Ark alumnus, will be available to have his picture taken with children for a fee of $3 per photo. The money raised from the photo shoot will also go toward a special shelter project for the animals.

Door prizes will be awarded.

The shelter is located at 60 Barber Lane in Cherryfield.
