Pets get time with Santa for SPCA fundraiser

Santa has booked off time in his busy schedule from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. today at Chahko Mika Mall

Looking for a last minute gift for the grandma who has everything? Feel like your family Christmas card is missing something? The Nelson branch of the BC SPCA may have the solution.

Santa has booked off time in his busy schedule from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. today at Chahko Mika Mall and then again 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday at the Nelson SPCA for photos with pets, kids, and families. Taken by a professional photographer, these photos will include whichever members of the family, four-legged or otherwise, you would like. For only a $12 donation, participants can get two 5×7 and six wallet size photos.

“We feel very grateful that Santa has found time in his holiday schedule to help us out,” says Rob Andrew, the Nelson branch manager. “He’s always been an animal lover, so he wasn’t very hard to convince.”

All friendly dogs, cats, and other animals are welcome. The Nelson SPCA is located at 520-C Falls Street, above the Savoy Bowling Lanes.
