For the 30th year in a row, Santa Claus and over 800 volunteers will take time out of their busy schedules to help local homeless animals.
The annual Picture Your Pets with Santa at all Feeders Supply stores will be held the first Dec. 2 and 9 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and Dec. 3 and 10 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
While dogs, cats and often their families are most likely in the photos, all species are welcome. In the past, chickens, bunnies, bearded dragons and even horses have had their photos taken with Santa.
Pet owners can get professional holiday portraits and gift items of their family members and help local homeless animals at the same time. Last year’s event brought in more than $100,000 for local animal welfare agencies. 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.
