Santa Claus will be delivering puppies to people's houses on Christmas
Looks like Santa Claus is taking a rather unusual form this year: That of the Coastal Humane Society.
The animal shelter has announced it's plan to bring any of it's numerous adoptable pets to the home of their new families on Christmas Day, hand-delivered by none other than Santa himself.

The Costal Human Society is looking to send its latest group of rescued animals, 35 puppies from Blairsville, Georgia, home for the holidays to loving families. So much so, that they're promising to make the rescues a little extra special: The shelter will deliver the pet to the home of the adopter on Christmas Day, dressed as Santa or one of his elves.
According to the shelter's Facebook page, the special promotion begins on Saturday, December 19 when the shelter opens at noon. Adopters can take home the pet then and there if they are approved for adoption, or sign up to have a special delivery made by the good folks from the North Pole on Christmas Day.
The shelter will also offer Christmas Eve pick-up if adopters would like to take home their pet earlier.
While they are thrilled to be offering the "Home for the Holidays Delivery Service" and hope many adopters will take advantage of it, officials from the shelter do warn that "giving a pet as a gift is not always in the best interest of the animal and stress that this special is only for pets that will live in the same household as the person who arranges for the delivery."
But if your household is stable enough to welcome an animal in desperate need of a home, by all means go for it!
P.S. If you're not a dog person, but still want to get in on the Christmas magic, worry not -- Santa will also be delivering cat and other small animal to good little girls and boys.
