Here Comes Santa Paws

Santa will be making a special appearance to pose with your pet for a holiday portrait at the annual “Photos with Santa Paws” event to benefit the Pacific Cove Humane Society. The Pony Village Mall hosts the pre-holiday fundraiser in a space near Macy’s, on Saturday, November 9th, from 1:00 to 3:30pm.

All well-behaved pets, from cats and dogs to more unusual creatures, are invited to have their photo taken with Santa Paws. Their human friends are welcome to join the portrait sitting, Professional photography services are provided by Julie Noggle of Brown’s Studio & Camera Shop, who donates her time and photo processing for the event. One print of each portrait is $10.00 and can be picked up at Brown’s Studio, 2020 Sherman Avenue in North Bend. Additional prints and holiday photo cards can be ordered, as well.

Pet owners are asked to bring small animals in carriers for their safety and keep dogs on leashes. The event will feature goodie bags from Cranberry Sweets, give-away items from Mini Pet Mart, holiday bandanas created by Lynn Jochum, and drawings for two gift cards from Ciccarelli’s Restaurant, a basket filled with treats from Cranberry Sweets, and gift bags loaded with clever animal-themed items. Pets who are looking for homes will be on hand for attendees to get acquainted with, and there will also be photos of pets who are available for adoption.

The proceeds from “Photos with Santa Paws” will support the Pacific Cove Humane Society in its mission to build a pet care center for our region. Information about Pacific Cove and “Photos with Santa Paws” is available by calling 541-404-6704, or by visiting
