Families and their pets are invited to get gussied up for some holiday photos in December through the Friends of Hardin County Animal Shelter’s Santa Paws Pet Pictures.

The seasonal photo event with Santa will be from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Dec. 4-5 and Dec. 11-12 at 167 Towne Drive in Elizabethtown. The location is about halfway between Pet Supplies Plus and Kroger.

Autumn O’Neal of the Friends of Hardin County Animal Shelter said people can come anytime during the designated time frame. It is first come, first serve.

All types of pets are welcome. In the past, O’Neal said pets have ranged from dogs and cats to snakes and even a skunk.

Photos can be of just a pet, multiple pets, and even pets and family members. O’Neal said they have a seasonal backdrop with a fireplace and Christmas tree.

If people have an animal that might be reactive, O’Neal asked the owner to let organizers know before bringing the pet inside. They’ll have space available for them to wait until their session, should they want it.

A variety of photo packages will be available, including a digital file, beginning at $12. Photos will be taken by Gina Clear of Gina Clear Photography.

O’Neal said they’ll work with families and pets to get the perfect shot.

“We always get the picture. We work with the animal. We absolutely do not do in and out. We always get the picture,” she said.

All proceeds go to Friends of the Hardin County Animal Shelter to aid area animals.

“It’s so much fun. If you have a pet, bring it, or dress up your friend’s and bring it. We’ll get a picture of whatever you bring,” she said.
