Volunteers will be available to discuss the mission and services of the Humane Society and to accept donations of pet food and cat litter for the organization’s Pet Food Bank, a service to pet guardians in need of assistance feeding their animals.

On Nov. 10, local photographer Bill Washington and Santa’s helper Barney Barnhardt will be at Main Stream Pets, 5675 S. Main St., from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the annual Pet Portraits With Santa. No appointment is necessary.
