Thanks for Visiting Santa Paws!

As always, Santa Paws Comes to Town was a lot of fun. It was wonderful to see familiar faces come back year after year because they love our seasonal display plus the quality of our photos, and our totally pawsh doggy gift bags chock full of goodies thanks to Tisol Pet Supply & Nutrition, Love on a Leash Trusted Dog Care, Modern Dog magazine and The Sequoia Restaurant Group. Siegel’s Bagels provided lots of goodies for the humans to enjoy along with their hot mulled cider and RubyC and her amazing team at Modern Romance Photography really did a fabulous job with their on-site photography and printing of the photos. 

Volunteers went above and beyond the call of duty, taking great care of the hundreds of dogs, six cats, five bunnies and a hedgehog who came through to help us celebrate the true meaning of the holiday this year... GIVING! Our own adorable 17-year-old Bichon guy, Finnigan, even made it out to see Santa again this year and we donated $1,000 to Thank Dog I Am Out Dog Rescue Society today.

See all the fun on our Facebook page where you’ll see all the photos by Modern Romance who just knocked it right out of the park. This is a very sharp and professional outfit. They are an award-winning, full-time photo and video studio based in Vancouver, BC. “A team of passionate photographers and videographers; we shoot in photojournalist style with a traditional touch and love to capture anything from pets to weddings.”

Ruby is a photographer who loves dogs. Cedric loves them too, along with all kinds of other animals, and bugs. Both are avid scuba divers who love the aquatic flora and fauna. Having trained with military dogs, worked at a pet store, and volunteered for animal-welfare activities, they then embarked on the exciting and fulfilling world of pets and animal photography.

They not only have the patience of working with animals, but also an understanding of developing a connection with them, and capturing their special moments in a good light.

Together with their devoted team, keen instincts, and an impeccable eye(s) for detail, they will ensure that you and your beloved pets look fabulous.
