The Humane Society of Washington County is preparing for a weekend day of photos with Santa. On Saturday, pet owners and their pets can have their photo taken with Santa at Sharrett Subaru, 10310 Auto Place, and at PetSmart, 17740 Garland Groh Blvd.
A portion of the proceeds from both events will benefit the shelter.
Sharrett Subaru will host Studio 3 Photography for photos with Santa in the Subaru showroom with a fireplace backdrop between 2 and 4 p.m.
The cost will be $10 with 50 percent to the shelter and a portion of that will be donated to the shelter by Studio 3 Photography.
Donations will be accepted at Sharrett. Dog and cat toys will be appreciated.
Adoptable animals from the shelter will be on site for prospective adoption.
PetSmart will also host Santa Photos at their location between 11 a.m. and 4 pm. The cost will be $9.95, which will include a specially designed frame photo, and $5 of that will be donated to the shelter.
The humane society is at 13011 Maugansville Road in Hagerstown. Call 301-733-2060 or go to www.hswcmd.org for information on animal-related issues, directions to the shelter and information about programs and services.
