Santa Paws 2010
Santa Paws—pictures with Santa—took
place on November 20, 2010 at Pet
Food Express in Napa and was a won-
derful success. Santa (Matt Stegman)
did a great job, despite being licked and
slobbered on by all the happy canines!
Pet Food Express donated the space,
and we were able to borrow scenery
because of the generosity of neighbor-
ing stores; World Market and Orchard
Expert photographer, Travis Pacheco,
assisted by his wife Nikki, were able to
take over 70 photos of animals and all
who received a photo were very happy
with the results.
Our raffle and silent auction were a nice
addition to the day and it proved to be a
successful and fun afternoon for every-
Thanks to all the volunteers who helped
us out and also thank you to all of you
who brought your animals in and joined
in the fun that day! Next year, Santa
Paws will again be at Pet Food Express
on November 19, 2011…..So mark your

day present a flyer from Paws for

Training And Evaluation
Dates for 2011
Mark your calendar for the training
and re-evaluation dates for 2011.
They will be held at the CEC build-
ing on Menlo Ave. in Napa. This
year we are planning to combine
the training dates for new volun-
teers in conjunction with re-
evaluation dates for experienced
volunteers or second dogs. Volun-
teers are notified if they need to
bring their dog in for a re-eval.
In addition, a new change is that on
the second day of the training, the
READ program orientation will be
added at the end of the day so that
volunteers who are interested in
that program do not have to come
back for an extra day of training.
Dates for 2011 are as follows:
We frequently need extra help on
those days so if you are available,
please let us know: 707-258-3486
There is an additional charge of $20
for the READ program; this pays
for membership in the national or-
ganization I.T.A. should you want
With these changes we think we
will be able to provide more effi-
cient and complete training for each
of our volunteers.
If you have not been to the PFH "store"
lately then we suggest you stop by and
check out the new merchandise on
hand. New items now available are
PFH travel bags and treat bags: Cost:
$12.00/travel bag and $8.00/treat bag.
The travel bag is a great tool to carry
all the various items you may need for
you and your furry friend when you set
out to volunteer together as a PFH
As a reminder the PFH store is open on
the second day of every training class.
2011 store dates are as follows: Jan
29, Mar 19, May 21, Sept 24, and Nov
