With your $15.00 donation, you will receive 2 digital copies – purrfect to use for your annual holiday cards and to spread some cheer!
How to prepare your pets
Here are some tips to help prepare your pets for this fun event:
Make sure your pet is up to date on vaccinations one week prior to the event.
Have all dogs on a leash.
Have all cats and other small animals in a carrier.
Please use caution when transporting your pet to and from this event.
Will your pet be anxious if waiting in line around other animals? Bring a friend who can stand in line for you and your pet while you can keep your pet moving around the store or parking lot.
Dress your pet! – Though this is not necessary, enjoy the spirit of the season with a festive collar or sweater. If considering dressing your pet up for their photo, have them get more comfortable by wearing their festive apparel around the house in small amounts of time prior to their photo.
Take Fido for a walk prior to the event. This may help your friend sit calmly as they wait in line to meet Santa Paws.
Does your pet have a favorite toy? Help guarantee your pet will be looking at the camera by standing behind the photographer with their favorite squeaky, or crinkle toy.
You know your pets best- if they will be too stressed by coming to a strange place and potentially waiting near strange people and other pets, please be mindful of this and consider leaving high stress pets at home.
