Santa Claws PetsMart Holiday Photo Fundraiser – Newport News

It’s that time of year again to plan for the holidays! The PetSmart Santa Claws® fundraising promotion is an annual in-store event offering SEVA GRREAT a means to connect with animal owners while spreading a bit of holiday cheer. PetSmart customers and their pets are invited to pose for a holiday photo with Santa Claws® for a $5 donation to SEVA GRREAT.

There is a new twist this year … YOU GET TO PLAY PHOTOGRAPHER! New for 2013, Pet Parents are asked to bring their own camera and snap shots of their animal sitting with our Santa. We will have a volunteer available to assist, and cute accessories to dress up your pet. Note: we will no longer be printing out the photos for you; you will therefore own the rights to the photos you take and can use the images as you wish.

Come on out … it promises to be fun!
