How to Participate

Tickets are closed at this time.

In an effort to protect the health & safety of all guests, Santa Paws will look much different than in year’s past. Please read through these instructions to learn how to participate in the 2020 event:

  • There will be no Santas available in your photo. To adhere to social distancing guidelines, we will not have Santa available for your photo. Each location will have a festive holiday backdrop for photos.
  • You must register in advance and select an appointment time. Walk-ins will not be accepted.
  • Tickets for 2020 Santa Paws are now available. There are a limited number of appointment times for each location and we encourage you to register early.
  • Listed below is the schedule for where photos will take place. Please note that some of these locations are outdoors and some are indoors. If you plan to bring your cat, bird or other non-dog animal, please sign up for the Hawthorne or Beaverton Town Square locations only (these are indoor locations). We will not allow pets of any kind to be off leash at outdoor locations. If you have your photo taken at one of the outdoor or parking garage locations, know that you will need to be in the photo with your pet. Due to safety reasons, we cannot have any animals in the photo without their handler holding on to them or their leash.
  • All guests should arrive with a face mask on that covers both nose and mouth. You will be permitted to take off your mask during your photo, however, masks must be worn at all times before and after your photo is taken.
  • Appointments will be scheduled every 20 minutes for up to 6 groups. This means that each group will only have a few minutes to have their photo taken. Please arrive on time and wait in your vehicle until 3 minutes prior to your appointment time. At that point, you can come check in and wait in line for your photo.
  • Photo prints will be ready for pick-up at the same Mud Bay location where you had your photos taken on the Friday after your photo session. That Friday, you will also receive an email from Oregon Humane Society with a link to the online gallery where you can view all photos taken at the event. Due to the number of participants, we cannot provide a private photo gallery for each person.

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. Any animal not on a leash, can only have photos taken at the Hawthorne Mud Bay – this is an indoor location and is safest for these pets.

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 will be a short wait in line for photos.
