Adopt a pet from now until Dec. 22 from Angels of Assisi, and Santa will deliver your new companion to your home.
The adoption price (plus $10 for the sleigh ride) will bring the newly adopted pet, adorned in a festive holiday bow, to your door (not down the chimney) on Christmas Eve between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
If you like, Santa will also talk to children about caring for their new pet.
The delivery location for each pet must be within a 20-mile radius of Angels of Assisi, located in downtown Roanoke. An employee of Angels of Assisi will contact the adopter on Thursday, December 23 to confirm an approximate delivery time. Potential adopters still need to fill out the required adoption application and go through the approval process after the new pet is chosen.
As great as it to have Santa bring your new critter to your home,keep in mind that adding a new pet to your home for the holiday may not be a great idea if you anticipate a lot of company or excess activity.
