Picture Your Pets with Santa – held at all 17 Feeders Supply stores Dec. 3-4 and 10-11 – raised over $100,000 for five local animal charities: the Kentucky Humane Society, Floyd County (Ind.) Animal Rescue League, Shamrock Pet Foundation, Saving Sunny Inc., and the Franklin County (KY) Humane Society.
This was the most successful Picture Your Pets with Santa in the event’s 29-year history, which was started in 1987 by Feeders Supply to help local animal organizations. Each Feeders Supply store hosts the event the first two weekends in December, and over 500 volunteers from the animal charities staff the event, with all proceeds benefitting the designated charities.
“This is by far the biggest Picture Your Pets event we’ve seen, with 17 Feeders Supply locations and five local animal organizations,” says Pam Longwell, President of Feeders Supply. “We provide the space in our stores and advertise the event. The animal charities collect and keep all of the proceeds from photo and photo gift item sales. Hosting this event is just one of the ways that we give back to our communities. We are very excited to help all these worthy charities raise funds for their animals.”
We also offer special thanks to our Picture Your Pets With Santa pet food sponsor-Natural Balance. The support allows us to do even more promotion for the event!
