Whether your four-legged friend has been naughty or nice or both, have your pet’s photo taken with Santa Paws this holiday season.

Young-Williams Animal Center is once again offering pet pictures with Santa Paws. These festive photos can be used as unique holiday cards, personalized gifts or keepsakes featuring the furry members of your family. In addition, proceeds from the Santa Paws event benefit Young-Williams Animal Center, so your participation will help support local animals in need during the holidays and beyond.

A professional photographer will take pet portraits with a real-life Santa for the 2013 holidays. Mark your calendar for a photo session at the dates and times below:

Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 7-8
Noon-4 p.m.
Young-Williams Animal Village
6400 Kingston Pike (on Bearden Hill in Knoxville)

The photo session is free, and photo packages, holiday cards and gift items will be available for purchase via online ordering. For more information, call 865-215-6599.
