Naughty and Nice pets can ask Santa for treats this year

Posted: Updated:

Whether your furry friend has been naughty or nice, they can stop in to visit with Santa this holiday season.

The Vanderburgh Humane Society's 28th annual Pet Pictures is just in time to get family Christmas card photos ready. 

For $25, you will receive four 4 X 6 color prints, two prints of two poses, and the digital images. Each sitting may include more than 1 animal, and kids and adults are also welcome to be in the picture!

Doug Fox will be donating his time and talent to take the photos, so the entire $25 fee will come to the animals of the VHS.  Santa is also taking time out of his busy North Pole schedule and has volunteered to be at the VHS on all three days.                                                           

The fundraiser averages $7,000 a year for the VHS.  Typically, the three day event has more than 300 pet owners bringing countless numbers of pets of all types. 

Funds raised from this event will help the VHS care for the nearly 4,000 animals that are surrendered to our facility each year, provide low cost spay/neuter services, and educate the public on important animal issues.

Pet Pictures with Santa will take place on November 1st, 2nd , and 3rd at the humane society on 400 Millner Industrial Drive.  Santa is available during these times:

  • Friday, November 1st, Noon - 7 PM
  • Saturday, November 2nd, 10 AM - 5 PM
  • Sunday, November 3rd, Noon - 4 PM

All pets should be kept on a leash or in a carrier and be current on their Rabies vaccination. 

For more information on this event and for photo opportunities, please contact Kendall Paul by email: k.paul@vhslifesaver.org.
