First of all, everyone’s favorite fellow in red will be there, just in time for the holiday season and just for a few hours, but you, your family and pets can capture a long lasting look at Christmas 2013.
And, you’ll leave knowing you’ve given a Christmas gift to the Animal Shelter of Pell City and their efforts to provide care, services and adoptive homes for animals at the facility.
Just stop by the offices of Pell City Animal Hospital on U.S. 231 South where Dr. Ken McMillan, Dr. James B. Farmer, Dr. Kevin P. McIlwaine and staff will lend their location to the event Dec. 8.
Between the hours of 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., Santa and professional photographer Wallace Bromberg will work together to take photos of you and yours, giving their time and talents to raise funds for ASPC.
There’s no need to make appointments; it’s all arranged according to when you arrive and get in line.
Payments need to be made by cash or check and need to be paid when the photos are taken.
Each participant will receive a 4 by 6 inch professional photograph placed inside a photo folder and of course, extra copies of photographs and photo packages may also be ordered.
Pets brought in for the event must be on leashes or harnesses or placed inside a carrier for safety reasons. Pet owners also need to bring along proof of current vaccinations for their pets.
It is recommended not to bring pets for the event who may have a history of having issues of biting or aggression with people or other pets, for safety reasons.
Those who take part in the photo sessions are invited to don their favorite holiday wear, and also bring the same for their pets if pets are “outfit tolerant.”
The ASPC is a 501c3 nonprofit organization located at 1071 Airport Road in Pell City.
Hours for the facility are Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Saturdays, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m.
The adoption fee for shelter animals is $125 and includes spay/neuter procedures, microchip (includes registration), vaccinations (DA2PP for dogs/FVRCP for cats), rabies vaccination, a physical exam, de-wormer, a heartworm test for dogs and a feline leukemia test for cats.
