Most pet owners don't need an excuse to play dress up with their four-legged friends.
However, if you live in or around Collierville, Tennessee, you have a great excuse to do it for a good cause this weekend.
For $10, you can get your pet's photo taken with Santa Claus. All proceeds will go to Memphis Pets Alive! (MPA!), a nonprofit organization dedicated to finding homes for Memphis-area shelter animals.
Memphis Pets Alive! studies successful shelter pet adoption practices in other cities and implements novel and progressive methods to get healthy, adoptable animals out of Memphis and Mid-South shelters and into loving forever homes.
The organization also helps struggling pet owners find alternatives to shelter surrenders.
If you'd like to attend the photoshoot this weekend, you must bring your pet on a leash. Children are welcome to attend with you. There will be holiday-themed costumes and accessories available for your pet to borrow, and the photos will be made available to pet owners electronically after the event.
If you'd like to attend the event but don't have a furry friend to bring, you're in luck! Memphis Pets Alive! is hosting an adoption event on Saturday, November 12 from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. at PetSmart, located at 5883 Poplar Avenue.
