Winter is coming, and natural gas prices are at record highs. It has been unscientifically proven that a sleeping cat in your lap will allow
you to set your thermostat five degrees lower without any ill effects! The Chatham County Animal Shelter has many wonderful lapwarmers available for adoption. Cats can be seen at the shelter on Landfill Road M-F from 9 to 4 and Sat 10-2, and at the Apex Petsmart at 55/64 anytime the store is open. For pictures and descriptions of the many wonderful cats (and dogs) available, go to the Chatham Animal Rescue and Education website.

Also coming next weekend is Home for the Holidays. Events include:

Saturday December 11
When: 10am-4pm
Where: Chatham County Animal Shelter, 725 County Landfill Road Pittsboro
Questions: Contact CCAS at 919-542-7203 or H4TH at Chatham Animal Rescue and Education

Animals for Adoption: Come meet your new best friend! Adopters during the event will receive a FREE picture with Santa and ornament to remember this special day.

Santa Paws Photos: Bring your furry (or not so furry) friends to have their pictures taken with Santa. We can place your photo in an ornament for $9.99. Other options include a 2004 frame, a CD to save your pet's picture, and a stocking to decorate! If you don't have a pet, come on down and choose one of our shelter animals to pose with.

Angel Tree: Bring holiday cheer to the animals of the shelter by fulfilling their wishes hung on our tree.

Join in the fun, enjoy the refreshments, support a great cause, and visit with the dogs and cats who would love a new home for the holidays.

Sunday December 12
When: 11am-3pm
Where: Wal-Mart in Siler City, NC

Come get your photo taken with Hagrid, Certified Therapy Dog and Canine Good Citizen. Hagrid is a 229 pound English Mastiff.
