Dogs Prepare to Meet Santa

Santa is making stops at Petco and Petsmart this month to pose for holiday photos with dogs and other pets.

Pet retailers Petco and Petsmart are prepping their stores for Santa to make appearances at the retailers’ locations nationwide this month. Dogs can meet with Santa, sit on his lap, and pose for a holiday photo – all while helping raise money for pets in need.

Santa will visit Petsmart from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. the first three weekends in December – Dec. 1-2, Dec. 8-9 and Dec. 15-16. The cost is $9.95 ($8.95 for PetPerks members), $5 of which will be donated to a local animal welfare organization. The price includes a digital photo with a holiday frame.

Visit Petsmart’s website for particpating store locations.

Petco stores will host Santa from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 8. For $6.95, customers will receive a framed photo of their pet sitting with Santa, and $5 of that will be donated to a local animal welfare organization.

As well as the national chains, Santa will make stops at many smaller pet stores throughout the month. Check local stores for holiday event details.
