The annual Picture Your Pets with Santa at all 23 Feeders Supply stores will be held the first two weekends in December on Saturdays 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and Sundays 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
The event is expected to attract over 5,000 families and raise over $100,000 for 10 local animal charities: the Kentucky Humane Society, Floyd County Animal Rescue League, Lexington Humane Society, Franklin County Humane Society, Humane Society of Oldham County, J.B. Ogle Animal Shelter Saving Sunny, Shamrock Pet Foundation, Barktown Rescue and Boone County Animal Control.
“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. 1-2 and 8-9 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.
“It’s Feeders Supply’s mission to provide excellent pet nutrition, quality pet care advice, and to give back to our community,” said Pam Longwell, President and CEO of Feeders Supply. “We are so excited that all of our Feeder 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, PetFirst Pet Insurance and Park Community Credit Union.
