VIENNA - From 6-8 p.m. Tuesday the Grand Central Mall will hold "Pet Photos with Santa" when the mall will donate $5 to the Humane Society of Parkersburg for each photo sold during the two-hour event. In addition, the mall hopes to collect items on behalf of the Humane Society of Parkersburg.
"We are working closely with the humane society so we know what their most pressing needs are at this time," said Katrina Stephens, mall marketing director.
In an effort to encourage such donations, Grand Central Mall has teamed up with Worldwide Photography, which owns and operates the Santa photo set at the mall. Participants who bring in any donation from the following list will receive a free five-by-seven-inch photo with any package purchase:
* Purina Puppy, Dog, Cat or Kitty Chow
* Canned dog food
* Cat litter (non-clumping)
* Litter boxes
* New or used towels
* New or used blankets
* Dog or cat treats
* Dog or cat toys
Pet Photos with Santa is open to domestic dogs and cats only.
All animals must be in a carrier or on a leash while inside the mall.
