Pet Pangaea LLC is excited to announce that a Santa mailbox has appeared in front of their store. Pet Pangaea LLC is a local pet supply store offering high-quality pet food and supplies, located in Los Alamos. Known for its Turtle Tuesday segments on Facebook featuring the store’s adopted pet turtles and 24/7 client service, Pet Pangaea is a staple of the community. A little-known fact about Pet Pangaea is its close relationship with Santa. Santa buys food for his reindeers every single year, and Dasher (the picky eater among the bunch) will only eat hay from this store. (He seems to think it tastes fresher than most.) Every year Santa chooses a Santa mailbox location for all the children, pets, and adults. Pet Pangaea is proud to announce that they’ve been chosen as this year’s Santa mailbox location!

Owner Cyndi Wells arrived to find the mailbox this morning, along with a letter from the North Pole explaining how the mailbox works. She expressed her enthusiasm at Santa’s decision saying that she is “thrilled and honored that we were selected as a Santa mailbox location this year.” 

Pets, adults, and children simply have to write their letter to Santa, and drop it in the mailbox located in front of the store at 158 Central Park Square in Los Alamos, NM. If a return address is included, those who send letters may receive a response in the mail! The mailbox will be available until December 24, 2021 during the store’s open hours.

The Elves have a small request though (pun intended). Since they are conserving their magic to make all the wonderful gifts for good pets, children and adults, they won’t be sending the response letters via magic. All the response letters will be sent via USPS. If you’d like a response from Santa by Christmas, please drop it into the Santa mailbox before or on December 14th, 2021 so there’s enough time for response letters to arrive in a timely manner. (Mail carriers often also take a break at Santa’s place since Mrs. Claus always offers some of her famous frosted sugar cookies and hot chocolate.)

Santa and the Elves are working hard for all the good boys and girls (and pets) this year. They’re looking forward to receiving and reading many letters. As Santa is known to say, “Receiving mail from boys and girls always makes me so jolly.” 

If you drop off a letter for Santa at the mailbox location, please feel free to stop into Pet Pangaea LLC. Pet Pangaea is open 7 days a week: Monday – Friday from 10 am to 7 pm, Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm, and Sunday from noon to 6 pm Pet Pangaea has wonderful gift options for all sorts of pets from chickens to dogs to rabbits, as well as great gifts for humans who love pets. It’s definitely worth checking out! A nice gift that the shop recommends is a gift card for the friend you have that is the best and most caring Pet Mom or Dad- they’ll be sure to appreciate it. Santa Paws will also be held at Pet Pangaea LLC from 1 to 4 pm on Sunday, Dec. 12th as a fundraiser for humane organizations.
