Free Pet Photos With Santa, Thanks to PETCO



November 30, 2009


All kids love Santa, even the furry ones! That's right, pets will have the chance to sit on Santa's lap and have their photo taken for free at PETCO stores nationwide Saturday, December 5 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. 


"It's the season of giving and what better gift to give than a photo of perhaps the most cherished member of your family, your pet?" said Elisabeth Charles, Chief Marketing Officer for PETCO, in a released statement. "Giving our customers a free pet photo with Santa is our way of making their holiday even more special."


Any purchase made on December 5 or PALS loyalty program membership qualifies customers to receive their free pet photo (one photo per household while supplies last). PETCO will also offer photos with Santa on December 12 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for $8.95 plus tax, with $5 from each photo purchased donated to the PETCO Foundation to help animals in need at local animal shelters.


To locate a store near you, visit their Web site at www.petco.com.
