Santa Paws: Santa Dog Photos

FurBaby Santa Paws Banner

It’s pretty special when Santa comes to visit! It’s even more special when he takes time out to spend it with adorable cute furbabies.

That’s why FurBaby hosts Santa Paws event every year – So your furbaby can have their photo taken with Santa. And, whilst it is super cute, its gives back to animals in need, as it raises much needed money and awareness for some of Perth’s most impactful animal rescues.

As FurBaby is all about animals, we know how to get them looking at the camera ever so cute! The very talented Richelle from Richelle Beswick Photography is an amazing animal photographer, her work is absolutely amazing, we are so lucky to have her do our Santa Paws photos. We are able capture the best possible photo of your dog, animals, family and Santa.

This year we have transformed our VID Area to a Christmas wonderland, with Christmas trees and baubles galore, all set up for Santa, so he is nice and comfortable and photos will be perfect! As we are all skilled with animals you can be assured we will be able to capture how special your furbaby is spending time with Santa.

Santa Paws is not only for dogs, if you wanted to include your whole family. Or, animals that are not dogs, they are certainly welcome too!

Participants will be asked to line up outside the VID Area to wait for their turn to have their picture with Santa. Therefore, no bookings are needed, we will make sure everyone gets their opportunity to have their photo taken. We ask that all animals are kept on a lead or in a pet carrier for safety. Gazebos will be erected, so you will have protection from the weather while lining up for the photos. It doesn’t take much time to have a photo with Santa, so the line moves fairly quickly.
This year we have partnered with five amazing rescue partners; Husky & Malamute Rescue WA, Pets of Older People, Greyhound Adoptions WA, WA Pet Project & Companion Animal Transport Services. Each of them do so much to support animals in need in Western Australia. When you attend FurBaby Santa Paws 2019 you will be able to speak to representatives of one of the rescues to learn more about what they do. FurBaby Santa Paws 2019 Rescues 1
To have a photo with Santa it will just cost $15. No need to book, we will make sure everyone gets their photo opportunity!

You’re welcome to have multiple photos. For instance, if you want one photo of the whole family, and the next photo with just Santa and the dog/s, that is certainly possible. It will just cost $15 for each photo.
Sometimes we will need to use treats to get dogs to look at the camera. You will know what treat works best for your dog, so you’re encourage to bring their favourite treat along. If you forget, not to worry, there will be treats available to purchase on the day.
If your pooch is not good with other dogs, but are good with people they still can have their photo with Santa! We let in dogs one by one into the VID Area, so there is not competition for Santa’s attention.

The only time dogs need to be close to one another is in the line waiting for the photo. So, what we suggest is… bring two people to Santa Paws, one lines up and waits, the other waits in the car with the dogs. When it is time for the photo, you can drive your car close to VID and sneak the dogs in and out. That way no one misses out on photos and everyone stays safe.
The Café will be running as normal, so you will be able to purchase refreshments and stay for either breakfast or lunch if you wish.
Santa Photos will be taken in VID, and the line is all under gazebos, so don’t worry about the weather. We have you covered to make sure you’re out the sun!
