It was free for those who donated pet food, or owners could give a 10 dollar donation for a picture with the big man. This is the 4th annual holiday pet food drive and those at Kokopelli are hoping to raise 2 tons of food this year.

"Every year we do a pet food drive for all of the local shelters; so we donate to Mesa County Animal Services, Roice Hurst, Grand River and then Claws; and we just collect until Christmas time; cat food, dog food, cat litter, anything that we can," said Mary Young with Kokopelli Animal Hospital.

If you weren't able to stop by Saturday, donations can be dropped off up til December 20th at their location in Fruita.
