STONY POINT, NY – Assemblyman Colin Schmitt hosted a free Pet Photos with Santa event at his district office. Residents from all over the district showed up with dressed up dogs to get a photo with Santa. There was even a special couple of goats wearing Christmas sweaters who got into the holiday cheer!
Assemblyman Schmitt and his staff baked homemade pumpkin and peanut butter treats for the dogs. All attendees were welcomed to cups of hot chocolate and apple cider donuts from Soon’s Orchard in Wawayanda.
During the event, supplies for animals were collected that will be donated to the Blooming Grove Animal Shelter.
