Love Us And Leave Us, a day care facility for canines located at 1525 West Housatonic St., will be hosting an open house and Howliday party from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 9.

The festivities will include pictures with Santa Paws for a $5 or more donation to benefit the Eleanor Sonsini Animal Shelter; dog trainer Rachel Clarke; freebies from Whole Life pet products; pet products to purchase from Bark ‘n’ Cat and "Bake Me Pretty"; doggy gift basket raffles to benefit the Sonsini Shelter; and handmade dog goodies.

Snacks will also be available for dog owners.

All dogs attending must have current rabies and bordetella vaccinations, and must be spayed or neutered to play off leash in the yard with other dogs.

On the chance there are too many dogs at one time, owners should have an alternative solution to having them inside the facility.
