The Pet Expo: Where You Can Get Your Pet's Photo Taken with Santa

Tomorrow, area ankle biters, on two legs or four (including dogs, cats, rodents, birds, reptiles, and children), can get their photo taken with Santa at the Holiday Pet Expo in Fair Park. The event includes a ton of retailers, an obstacle course for dogs, costume and talent contests, pet adoptions and most importantly, candid photos with Kriss Kringle. It's free and will take place from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. at the Automobile Building in Fair Park.

Also, before dressing your fur-child up in his holiday best, make sure to check out the expo's rules as listed on the press release:

  • Your pet must be current on all shots or you should plan to have your pet's immunizations updated at the event (the immunization requirement only applies to dogs, cats and ferrets).
  • Dogs must be on a fixed lead or a locked retractable lead, no longer than 6 feet, at all times.
  • No female pets in heat can attend.
  • You'll be required to sign a pet waiver at the entrance, but you can avoid waiting in line by visiting the Holiday Pet Expo website.
