Mark your calendar and clean up your pet because Santa Claus is coming to town. Next month, the Alton Area Animal Aid Association will hold a special "pet photo with Santa" fundraiser at Alton Square Mall with all proceeds from the evening going to the shelter.

Alton 5A's Director Ric Jun says that you can participate even if you don't have your own dog.
