The Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine at Virginia Tech will host its annual opportunity for pets to meet and be photographed with Santa Claus on Saturday, Dec. 6, from 1 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 at 245 Duck Pond Drive. Signs will direct visitors to the event and ample parking will be available. 

Three package options will be available:

  • Option 1: $10 for the best three photos delivered digitally via Dropbox; 
  • Option 2: $15 for three 5 x 7 prints and digital delivery via Dropbox; and 
  • Option 3: $20 for three 5 x 7 prints and a CD with the photos on them. 

Pickup for options 2 and 3 will be at the veterinary college on Dec. 15 and 16.

The Santa pet photo program is presented by the college’s Omega Tau Sigma service fraternity, a veterinary student organization that provides a variety of community services. Proceeds from the event will benefit local animal shelters.
