11am - 3pm
Bring your pocket pet for a holiday photo! We will provide a holiday backdrop, winter-themed props. and a clean fleece-lined basket for your pocket pet to sit inside for their holiday photo.
For everyone's health and safety, this year due to the pandemic there will not be a costumed character nor will pet parents allowed in the photos - the photos will be of the pet only. Costumes and holiday outfits for your pet are encouraged - let your pet shine!
After the photos, all participants will get information for private viewing, and download instructions for their pets' photos. We will also have some merchandise available to purchase as well as some special pocket pet holiday ornaments for sale - bring your credit card for contactless payments.
Costume tip: practice with your pocket pet wearing their costume at home in a calm & patient environment leading up to the event so they are used to wearing their outfit the day of their photos. Bring their brush for any last-minute spiffing up!
Our helpful volunteers will be on hand to assist with outfits and ensure your pocket pets are safe and looking their best for their photos. Although we will have some treats on-site, please bring your pet's favorite treats with you which will help assist during the photo shoot.
Keep watch on our Facebook page for The 12 Days of Pocket Pets picture contest for the 11 days leading up to our event, starting on November 25th. Each day, one person will win our new holiday sticker not yet available to the public!
This holiday photo event is only for the 11 pocket pets we rescue: chinchillas, degus, ferrets, gerbils, guinea pigs, hamsters, hedgehogs, mice, rabbits, rats, and sugar gliders. Note: All ferrets must have proof of rabies vaccines to participate.
