“Picture Your Pets with Santa is the largest—and the oldest—pets with Santa photo event in Kentucky and Southern Indiana, and thousands of families look forward to making holiday memories while supporting local shelter animals,” says Andrea Blair, KHS spokesperson.
While dogs and cats are the most common participants, animals of all species are welcome, as well as their human families. Some of the more unusual guests have included chickens, bunnies, bearded dragons, guinea pigs and even horses.
Dec. 7-8 and 14-15 pet owners can get professional holiday portraits and help local homeless animals at the same time. Photos are offered in various packages, starting at $12. Gift items featuring the pet’s photo, including ornaments, mugs and key chains are also available, starting at $14. A new item this year is a personalized tote bag for $20.
Pet owners are asked to have dogs on leashes and cats and other pets in carriers. Horses can be photographed outside with Santa.
“It’s Feeders Supply’s mission to provide excellent pet nutrition, quality pet care advice, and to give back to our community,” said Brannon Dixon, President and CEO of Feeders Supply. “We are so excited that all of our Feeders Supply locations can help make lasting holiday memories along with helping local homeless pets.”
Picture Your Pets with Santa is a volunteer-driven event, and 100% of proceeds benefit the participating animal rescue organizations. Picture Your Pets with Santa is sponsored by Feeders Supply with Natural Balance Pet Food. Kentucky Humane Society locations are sponsored by PetFirst Pet Insurance and Park Community Credit Union.
