Visions of tennis balls danced in their heads
Santa Paws, December 8–9
Whether your four-legged friend has visions of sugarplums or simply dreams of a fuzzy new tennis ball, she’ll have the opportunity to express her fondest holiday wishes to Santa Paws during our annual photography event on Saturday, November 8 and Sunday, November 9.
Join us either day between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. (no appointment needed) to have your pet’s portrait taken with the jolliest Santa this side of the North Pole. Packages start at only $25 for digital images; prints, enlargements and photo greeting cards are also available. All proceeds directly benefit the Sacramento SPCA.
Participants are welcome to bring dogs (on leash, please), cats, and other small animals (in carriers). Human family members are welcome to be in the photo as well.
What makes the Sacramento SPCA’s Santa Paws event unique is that the set design changes from year to year. The theme for 2014 is “Golden Wonderland,” featuring a gold background, tree, ornaments and pillows. Although your animal companion may not visibly age much from one year to the next, it’s still worthwhile to attend annually because the images are so unique.
“We never miss Santa Paws, and we love how every year the photos have a completely new look,” says Sacramento resident Debra Townsend. “We’ve been coming since we were newlyweds with our two dogs.”
The Townsend’s photos show those same dogs with their first baby who is now almost nine years old. One dog has since passed, but they’ve added two more over the years — and another daughter.
“It’s just a joy to look back and see our family’s history in these pictures,” she says.
We’re pleased to welcome back local photographer Patrick Storm for a second Santa Paws season. Storm expertly captures that perfect moment when your dog, cat, iguana, or child looks his/her best.
