Santa Paws is coming to town with new business Pup Culture Pet Grooming hosting a fundraiser event for Red Collar Rescue offering Christmas-y snaps with your pet.
Shelby Veitch opened Pup Culture Pet Grooming five months ago, operating from Calavos.
The event will take place on Sunday 27 November from 2 until 4 pm at 5 Wolfended Road, Calavos, with a number of local businesses also attending.
Funds will be raised for Red Collar Rescue through a raffle with tickets $2 each, and prizes including a collar and lead set, Christmas dog cologne, a pet air purifier, Raw for Sure treats and the list goes on.
Shelby said the event would be the perfect opportunity for the community to get ready for Christmas with photos perfect for Christmas cards while also having access to a range of other local businesses.
“The event is a chance for people to get a pet photo with Santa but Daniel from DTM Photography will be here and able to offer a more professional snap, for those that are keen to pay him, for the family Christmas card,” she said.
“Because Pup Culture is a dog grooming service we will have other dog minded businesses here to showcase their products and services including Native Magic, Cruisin K9’s, The Dog Sitter, Indulgence Bandannas and Bows, as well as other small operators here on the day.”
Shelby is looking forward to hopefully making this event an annual occurrence.
“This is the first event I will be hosting as my business is brand new,” she said.
“It is my intention to have Santa photos each year and I hope to draw other like-minded pet businesses along with me to make it an event on the calendar.”
Shelby said after completing her training on the Sunshine Coast she was excited to continue to meet new furry friends.
“I am excited to really start spunking up our Bundy fur friends!”
