4 Paws plans Christmas event

4 Paws is hosting a community event for parish residents and their furry friends from 2-4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4 at the 4 Paws Dog Park, located at 290 Rodeo Rd. In Ruston. 

Even for those who don’t have a furry friend, Sue Martin, director of 4 Paws, said to come and join the fun.

“This is for kids and adults too,” Martin said. “Everyone likes a picture with Santa. And this is just the first of many community events we’ll be hosting.”

The event will include a visit from Jolly St. Nick himself, who will be available for pictures for a charge of $5, which will go to help 4 Paws. Also, hot cocoa, doggie treat bags and a Christmas dog outfit contest are scheduled. 

The $5 park fee entrance will be waived for the event. 

The 4 Paws Dog Park is a 1.5-acre area of fenced land with water, toys and agility challenges for dogs. There is a ½ acre dedicated for smaller dogs, while the other fenced acre is for large dogs.
