It doesn't matter if you've been naughty or nice: Santa Paws is coming to town and wants to take your picture for a very small price.

Guidelines for Pets

All pets welcome. Pets need to be brought in a carrier or on leash and harness. Please use caution in transporting your pet to and from this event.

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 these pets at home. You may want to bring favorite toys or treats along with you to the event to keep your pets calm and entertained. Depending on the time and location, there may be a short wait in line for photos.
