Santa Paws Pictures help Elizabeth’s Wildlife Center

Event takes place Sunday, Dec. 1 at Homestead Nurseryland in Abbotsford

One of the most popular holiday traditions is to get the kids all dressed up and take them to the mall for a picture with Santa.

But what about your pets?

Homestead Nurseryland and Florist (31888 Marshall Rd. in Abbotsford) is hosting Santa Paws Pictures on Sunday, Dec. 1 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Animals of all sorts are invited to have their photo taken with the Man in Red for a minimum donation of $10.

Proceeds go to Elizabeth’s Wildlife Centre in Abbotsford.

The centre, which has been operating for 33 years, cares for injured, sick and orphaned wild birds and small mammals, with the goal of releasing them back into the wild.

The site sees more than 500 creatures come through its doors each month during peak periods. Visit elizabethswildlifecenter.org for more information.
