It’s hard to believe, but our 4th annual Pictures with Santa Paws has come and gone. This past Saturday, November 21st we had over 40 pets come through and have their picture taken with jolly old Saint Nick. And this year we had a few different pets than we’ve had before, including Amazon parrots, a couple of ferrets, and a pot-bellied pig!
As in years past, all the pictures were shot for free, and this year we even gave every participant a professionally printed 8×10 glossy photo printed right there before they left. And also as in years past, we accepted donations to our favorite charity, the Big Cat Rescue in Carrollwood, FL.
$356 Raised For The Animals at Big Cat Rescue!
The Big Cat Rescue is a rescue and rehab center for the care and nurturing of injured, abandoned, and orphaned large felines. It’s located near the Citrus Park Mall in Carrollwood, and has been around for over 20 years now. The work they do there is truly remarkable, and they’ve continued to grow because of the wonderful work of their many volunteers, as well as the thoughtful donations of people just like the pet owners who came out for our event this weekend.
Because of the generosity of our great clients we were able to raise $356 for the rescue, every penny of which will go to the care and feeding of these great cats. We encourage everyone to visit the Big Cat Rescue to better understand the challenges the animal care industry faces in regards to these rescued and orphaned animals. You’ll be amazed and glad you went.
