Pet pictures and more with Santa, for a cause
Until 3 on Saturday afternoon, you can get pet pictures with Santa in Cicero, to benefit the attorneys' group that volunteers to help abused animals, and in some cases helps the animals themselves.
Nick DeMartino, who heads up VALAC (Volunteer Advocate Lawyers for Animal Abuse Court) was in wit his dog Aphrodite on their way to the event at Shear Love (in the Rte 31 Aldi's plaza)
In addition to the pictures, there are raffles and 'swag' , with the proceeds going to VALAC, which appears in Syracuse & Onondaga County courts on behalf of abused animals, and also has paid some rather expensive veterinary bills for abused and injured animals (Like Pomos: https://cnycentral.com/news/local/dog-on-the-road-to-recovery-after-brutal-attack )
DeMartino tells us that his group is also in talks with other Central NY Counties, to set up similar animal advocacy programs in their courts.
