Pets get chance to pose with Santa Paws

Horowhenua Chronicle - - NEWS - By LEXI RUTHER­FORD ■ Lexi Ruther­ford is on work ex­pe­ri­ence with the Horowhenua Chron­i­cle.

Pets will have an op­por­tu­nity to have a Christ­mas photo taken with their fam­i­lies in Levin this week­end.

In the first Santa Paws ini­tia­tive or­gan­ised by Horowhenua District Coun­cil, pro­fes­sional pho­tog­ra­pher and SPCA vol­un­teer Kelsey Dina will take pho­tos of fam­i­lies and their pets.

The pho­tos cost $5 each and all pro­ceeds go to the Horowhenua SPCA. The photo ses­sion will be held at Ko¯ whai Park from 9am to 12pm on Sun­day, De­cem­ber 9.

HDC Civic and Com­mu­nity Events Co­or­di­na­tor Melissa Steed­man said Santa Paws is the paw­fect way to cap­ture the whole fam­ily in a Christ­mas photo, as well as help­ing an­i­mals in care this fes­tive sea­son. They are ex­pect­ing mostly dogs and cats, which must be on leashes or in crates, but they wouldn’t be sur­prised if some­one brought along a goat or chicken which also must be ap­pro­pri­ately re­strained, she said.
