AMSTERDAM — The Montgomery County SPCA will hold its 10th Annual Holiday Pet Portraits and Vendor Fair on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event will take place in the Amsterdam Riverfront Center in downtown Amsterdam.
A $25 donation includes 3 printed photos and a holiday photo frame. For a $30 donation, you will receive a CD with all your digital images. Holiday photos of your pet can be taken by itself, with Santa or with the whole family. Also welcome are individuals and families without pets who would like to have a holiday photo taken, with or without Santa.
Photos will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis.
To insure the safety of all pets and people, all dogs must be leashed and all smaller animals (cats, birds, ferrets, rabbits, etc.) must be caged while in the Riverfront Center (except during the photo session).
The Vendor Fair will offer a variety of gift-giving selections for everyone on your list. Among the vendors participating are Junell Realty, Thirty-one, Frankie’s Friends, Paparazzi Accessories, Lisa Ann’s Pet Gifts, Benson’s Pet Center, Mary Kay, Sister’s Gifts and Kris’ Unique Lamps. The event will also include a MCSPCA Holiday Bake Shop. The MCSPCA also will have gift certificates for sale for holiday giving, which may be used towards a pet adoption, the PAL cat spay/neuter program, microchips and nail-clipping.
All proceeds from this annual holiday event directly benefit the homeless pets at the Montgomery County SPCA Animal Shelter this holiday season. Visit or Facebook, or email , for more information about this and other programs of the Montgomery County SPCA.
