PetSmart wants to make all your Christmas dreams come true this weekend.

Participating PetSmart locations are hosting visits with Santa for your pets!

You can take pictures with your phone or camera, or have the folks at PetSmart take a picture. They’ll provide you with a free digital photo file via email to cherish forever!

Though we have visions of puppies meeting Santa in our heads, apparently you can bring any type of pet you want, as long as it’s on this list:

  • Domestic dogs and cats
  • Birds
  • Small animals and reptiles sold at PetSmart (including, guinea pigs, hamsters, chinchillas, gerbils, mice, rats, certain geckos, bearded dragons, specific types of snakes, specific types of frogs, certain types of birds)
  • Other non-venomous reptiles
  • Ferrets
  • Rabbits
  • Sugar Gliders
  • Pot-bellied pigs

So there you have it: bring your pot-bellied pig to meet Santa, too!

According to a Facebook event, Santa will appear at noon on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 16-17 at participating locations. The event doesn’t say which locations are participating, so it’s best to call your local PetSmart and ask!
