WESTFIELD, NJ -- Santa Claus hears requests for toys from children in many languages and then delivers gifts to countries throughout the globe. On Saturday, he utilized his skills as a dog whisperer at the Knights of Columbus Hall on North Ave. in Westfield to help the sixth annual fundraiser for Brendan's Meadows dog rescue organization. 

Pet owners paid a suggested fee of $10 for a picture with St. Nick to help the all volunteer, non-profit, no kill dog rescue and placement operation. It was founded in 2009 by Clark resident Kerry Mooney, whose father, Brendan, believed "A house is not a home without a dog." The organization is comprised of a small group of devoted volunteers committed to giving dogs a second chance in life. It has foster homes in Scotch Plains, Westfield, Clark, Mountainside, Cranford, Summit and Toms River.

The Knights of Columbus in Westfield hosted the event. The organization's charitable activities encompass a wide variety of local, national and international projects, such as Special Olympics and Habitat for Humanity. The Knights of Columbus has 15,342 councils and 1.9 million members throughout the U.S. Canada and the globe. For information about renting the Knights of Columbus hall space, call (908) 612-3119.
