ST. CHARLES –  Pets can have their photos taken with Santa from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays Nov. 3 and Nov. 17 at St. Charles Veterinary Clinic, 530 N. Dunham Road, St. Charles.

The event is an annual fundraiser for Help for Endangered and Lost Pets of St. Charles, a charity dedicated to providing medical care and a safe living environment for as many cats and dogs possible.

The cost of having a pet photographed with Santa is $20 for two pictures with holiday card holders and picture emailed to you or $15 for a Santa picture with holiday card holder and picture emailed to you.

Cash, checks and credit cards accepted. Children are welcome to sit with their pets in the photo, all friendly pets are welcome.

All proceeds benefit HELP in its mission, not only to care for dogs and cats, but to educate the community on improving the lives of pets and reducing the stray and abandoned pet population through spay and neuter programs.

St. Charles Veterinary Clinic will also be hosting bake sales during Santa pictures to support HELP.  Donated items for the bake sale may be dropped off from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 2 and Nov. 16, or the day of the bake sale before 10 a.m.
