Vestal, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Santa stopped by Matthew's Auto Subaru to keep community pet's safe.

Pet owners were able make Pet ID tags and have a picture with Santa and their pet.

The cost was five dollars for each activity and 100% of all proceeds are going to the Humane Society of Broome County.

The Humane Society's facility on Jackson Ave was severely damaged by the 2011 flood.

Those who work at Subaru say their doors are always open to customers with pets.

"We have people lined up right off the bat, we've had lots of our Subaru customers, it is a pet-friendly facility also, if you come here to get your vehicle serviced or anything you can bring your pet," said Robert Finta of Matthews Subaru.

Matthew's Auto Group is also collecting pet food and supplies until the end of December.

They hope to have the entire show room filled with donations before passing them along to the Humane Society.

These are the supplies they are willing to collect:
Pedigree Canned Dog Food
Pedigree Dry Dog Food
Any Canned Cat Food
Purina Dry Cat Chow & Kitten Chow
Dog Treats - no rawhide
Dog Toys - Kong's and Nyla bones
Cat Toys & Catnip
Frontline or Advantage flea control
Unexpired pet medications
