Picture Your Pets with Santa
From December 2, 2023 - December 3, 2023 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Santa Claus and his helpers are again taking time out of their busy schedules to help local homeless animals. The annual Picture Your Pets with Santa returns to select Feeders Pet Supply stores for one weekend only – Saturday and Sunday, December 2-3, from 12-4 p.m.

Kentucky Humane Society (KHS) volunteers will be at the Preston and Middletown Feeders Pet Supply stores, with proceeds from these two locations benefiting KHS.

The first weekend in December, families can get holiday portraits and help local homeless animals at the same time. For a donation of $25 or more, families will take home a flash drive with their holiday photos that day. Due to increased costs, the nonprofit organizations are not printing photos or photo gifts like they have in the past. Instead, families can use the flash drives to order photos and gifts of their choice from their favorite local or online vendors.

Holiday Painting Party @ Willow Hope Farm
From December 2, 2023 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us on Saturday, December 2 as we kick off the holiday season with a holiday-themed painting party.

No artistic talent? No problem. Our artist will guide you step-by-step through the painting and will ensure that you stay on track to completing your masterpiece by the end of class. There are no mistakes, but Acrylic paint dries quickly, making 'happy accidents' easy to fix and perfect.

Painters have been known to wear their work, but don’t worry. We will provide you a disposable apron, along with all other painting materials.

We’d love to sprinkle in more fun by including a holiday goodies exchange! Please bring your favorite holiday treat to share. Hot cocoa, apple cider and coffee will be provided.

Special artwork designed by KHS Equine C.A.R.E. Volunteer, Heidi Harrington.

Cost: $50.00 per person (Only 25 Slots Available)

Deadline to register is Saturday, Nov. 25. Secure your seat today!

Proceeds benefit the KHS Equine C.A.R.E. Program. Questions? Email us at [email protected]
