Santa Paws is Coming to Town ~ Holiday Pet Portraits!

The Animal Shelter of the Wood River Valley invites you to bring your family to meet Santa at this fun annual event. Santa Paws will be in his finest red suit, ready to share “Ho, Ho, Ho’s” and get his photo taken with you, your family and pets at Sun Valley Animal Center on Saturday, November 10th and at Sawtooth Animal Center on Sunday, November 11th from 11am-2pm each day.

Santa Paws event organizer and the Animal Shelter’s Barkin’ Basement Thrift Store manager, Andrea Parker, says, “This is a great opportunity to capture that perfect holiday photo while supporting the Shelter.  My family loved the cards we made from the photo of my son and our puppy!”

Photo packages are just $20 and include two 5x7 and four 4x6 prints from the professionals at 5B Photo (formerly Flolo’s)! While waiting for your turn with Santa, share the holiday cheer with free refreshments and snacks.

If you are looking for a fabulous new holiday outfit for your photo, check out the Barkin’ Basement at 111 S. Main St in Hailey. The Barkin’ is open Monday – Saturday, 10 – 6, and from 10 – 4 on Sunday.

Participating in Santa Paws is just one easy way to support this community’s no-kill animal shelter. You’ll get a photo of your family to cherish for years and have peace of mind knowing that your holiday shopping is helping the homeless dogs and cats of our community.  100% of the proceeds from Santa Paws and the Barkin’ Basement Thrift Store support the Animal Shelter’s life-saving programs and services.
