Holiday Events to Benefit Kitsap Humane Society’s Homeless Animals

November 21, 2015

Mark your calendars, Santa Paws is coming to town and Kitsap Humane Society (KHS) is expanding  its holiday events throughout the County this year.

KHS is hosting holiday Santa Pet Photos on Saturday, Dec. 5 at Bay Hay & Feed on Bainbridge Island from 1-4:00pm, and on Sunday, Dec. 13 at Kitsap Humane Society’s Shelter in Silverdale from 12-3:00pm.  This annual fundraiser will benefit the shelter’s rescued animals.

Santa and local photographers Crystal Photography and Four Foot Photography will be on hand to take holiday photos of the whole family, including your pets. The cost is $20 and only digital files will be offered. The event will be on a first come, first served basis.

Santa Pet Photos has been an annual event for over 20 years and our volunteer Santas have seen their fair share of unusual pets; including llamas, parrots, chickens and snakes. Dogs and cats are naturally the most popular.

Not a fan of photos? You and your pet don’t have to miss out on the holiday cheer! KHS is partnering with the Port Orchard Chamber of Commerce on Saturday, Dec. 5 for the Annual Pooch and Purr Parade – your pet can strut their stuff through Downtown Port Orchard. Registration begins at 4:00pm and the parade begins promptly at 4:30pm. The cost is $10 and prizes will be awarded to the animals, large and small, with the best costume and holiday ensembles.
