Should You Get Pet Photos with Santa?
You know your pet best. Remember that any of these events are likely to be crowded with a lot of unfamiliar animals and people. Not all pets are comfortable in situations like this. The chance to get a cute photo isn’t worth making your pet feel stressed. Give it a try, but try not to be too disappointed if things don’t go as you’d hoped.
Those living in Edmonton have plenty of opportunities to bring their pets for a photo with Santa. As you do it, you’ll be making a donation that benefits a local charity – meaning you’ll get some cute festive photos and help animals in need at the same time.
