The Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech will offer its annual opportunity for pets to meet and get photographed with Santa Claus on Sunday, Dec. 1, from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the college’s Blacksburg campus.

Cats, dogs, and exotics (no reptiles) are welcome. All pets must be contained or on a leash.

Photographs will be taken at the veterinary college, located on 225 Duck Pond Drive. Signs will direct visitors to the event and ample parking will be available. Various packages of portraits will be offered for sale and details will be available on-site. The photos can either be picked up at the college or mailed.

The Santa pet photo program is being presented by the college’s Omega Tau Sigma service fraternity, a veterinary student organization that provides a variety of community services.
