Despite Indiana moving into stage 5, The VHS team has made the difficult decision to cancel Pet Pictures with Santa 2020 for the safety of our internal team of staff, photographers, Santa, and volunteers. While we could safely distance the public from one another -- this is an event that involves close face-to-face contact between our team and the public. If you are able, please still consider donating your $25 to the shelter to help offset the $10,000 in lost Pet Pictures with Santa revenue. Put "Pet Pictures" in the memo line. We'll see you in November 2021!
Don’t miss a Tri-State Christmas tradition! The VHS is host to the longest-running Pet Pictures with Santa event in the Tri-State, celebrating 34 years in 2019. Mr. Claus himself makes the trip to Washington Square Mall from the North Pole during the first full weekend in November each year. This allows families to get their photos back in plenty of time for family Christmas cards!
