It will be a holiday chorus of a whole different kind when the Iowa City Animal Care and Adoption Center hosts its annual Holiday with the Hounds event from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 10, 2016. Holiday with the Hounds doubles as a holiday open house for people who are interested in adopting a pet, as well as a supply drive for shelter animals. It will be held at the Center at 3910 Napoleon Lane, off Sand Road.

Visitors are encouraged to bring gifts for shelter animals, spend time with the pets, and enjoy cookies and cocoa at the event. Items on the Center's wish list include:
