Breakfast with Santa’s paws on Saturday
WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – This Saturday, December 11, Compass Nutrition is hosting the Beauties and Beasts Breakfast with Santa Paws event from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
At this event, guests will be able to meet and pet nine adoptable rescue dogs while eating healthy pancakes with Santa and even taking photos with him. Unfortunately, Santa Claus will not be there for the duration of the event; he must return to the North Pole at noon.
Guests can also make a donation for the rescue and receive a treat in return from Compass Nutrition as a thank you for supporting the organization.
“At the moment, Beauties has 177 dogs and 105 cats in care. We are in overcapacity. Events like this not only help spread awareness of the wonderful dogs and cats we have available for adoption, but it also gives us a great opportunity to educate the public about who we are, the importance of caring for animals well. and how they can continue to help us make a difference in Wichita and our surrounding communities. We can’t do what we do day in and day out without their continued support, ”said Kristen Sewell, owner of Compass Nutrition and volunteer at Beauties and Beasts.
Compass Nutrition is a healthy juice bar located at 2360 N Maize Road. Here you can find nutritional shakes, protein bowls, teas, coffee, and snacks. They aim to provide a fun, healthy community environment and that is why they accept dogs.
Beauties and Beasts 11th Hour Rescue is a volunteer animal rescue group located in Wichita. Their mission is to save animals from shelter “death row” and place them in loving foster homes that will provide them with the care and training they need to become happy, healthy and adoptable. The rescue does not discriminate against race, age, medical needs, or past behavior. Another big part of their mission is to be a voice for animals in need across Wichita and the surrounding community.
Since the rescue was founded in October 2014, they have saved the lives of over 2,000 animals on death row and networked over 1,100 animals for further rescues. They are a rescue run by volunteers and rely on donations from their supporters to carry out their mission.
Animals can be placed on death row for several different reasons. The main reason is that the shelter is at or near capacity. Shelters will euthanize animals due to overcrowding and provide more space for other animals. Dogs that have been sentenced to death the longest will be the first to be euthanized.
The Wichita Animal Shelter is currently a near capacity shelter. They are located at 3303 N Hillside St. and share a property with the Kansas Humane Society.
Beauties and Beasts are also running two donation events right now:
- Operation Santa Paws 2021
