Humane society Christmas open house

JOPLIN, MISSOURI -

Joplin Humane Society hosts its annual Christmas open house, complete with pet pictures with Santa, treats for humans and animals and adoption specials.

Those planning to adopt a pet were able to draw an ornament from a stocking for a special reduced price.

Pets are a common gift at Christmastime, but the Humane Society offers some advice.

"It's absolutely fine to give a pet as a Christmas gift, as long as its somebody that is in your family and you know that they want a pet and they're prepared to deal with a pet. We certainly don't encourage pets as surprise gifts for somebody that's not expecting them, we want to make sure the pet is going to have a forever home," Lysa Boston of JHS said.

The event concluded with the lighting of the tree of remembrance, where patrons could purchase a light in honor or memory of a pet.
