Whenever my family is in Downtown Rockford my kids insist that we stop and play with the kitties at Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary. Since we will be downtown on Saturday for Stroll On State, I'm positive we will be making a stop at Noah's Ark once again, but this time we'll play with Santa AND the adoptable cats and dogs.

Here's why; on Saturday Noah's Ark Animal Sanctuary will be staying open late to kickoff the holidays with pictures with Santa and some of their adorable adoptable pets.

According to their event page;

On 11/30/19 we will be open 12pm-9pm. Come enjoy raffles, refreshments and $5 digital photos with Santa and a pet. We have tons of cats and dogs waiting for there warm, forever homes. We hope to see you soon!
