Pets on Parade

Join us at the Village Faire Shopping Center Courtyard on Saturday, December 5, 2020 for its annual Pets on Parade, a charity event that will benefit Wagging Dog Rescue of Carlsbad. Get a picture of your dog with Santa Claus while helping to save shelter pets for a donation. To date we've raised over $7,000 to donate to Wagging Dog Rescue.

Photo with Santa isn't just for kids anymore!

Photos with Santa for your furry, four-legged family members, an exciting vendor area with fantastic pet-related products, a raffle, a group photo in front of the Christmas tree and a 20-minute parade through the Village with Santa!  What a great way to spend a Saturday morning.  All proceeds will benefit Wagging Dog Rescue

Photos are $30 with all proceeds benefiting Wagging Dog Rescue.  Photos are taken by a professional photographer with professional lighting and backdrop. Cash/check is preferred. Photos will be uploaded to an online account and will be available for free download Monday, December 9th or sooner. Schedule your appointment today st 760-644-2121 or by email at
