December 09, 1999

Area residents can take their pets to have their pictures taken with Santa Claus at two area malls.

Valley Mall will hold pet night with Santa on Tuesday, Dec. 14, from 7 to 9 p.m., according to Julie Simmons, marketing director.

Those who participate will get a digital 8-by-11 inch color picture of Santa Claus with their pet that night, Simmons said.

The costs begin at $10.95 with other offers available.

"Half of that goes to the Washington County SPCA, which will be on hand to talk with people about adopting pets," Simmons said.


The other half defrays the expenses for the mall, she said.

Leashes and cages are required for the pets that are to have their pictures taken.

The main entrance at The Bon Ton should be used.

The Martinsburg (W.Va.) Mall has set aside Monday, Dec. 13, from 5 to 8 p.m., according to marketing director Debbie Miller.

Pets are to be either on leashes or in cages. "And Santa has requested no snakes or exotic animals," Miller said.

The costs begin at $7.99.

Those participating are asked to enter the mall through the entrance between J.C. Penney and The Bon Ton, Miller said.

The Chambersburg (Pa.) Mall held its pet night with Santa on Dec. 6 and 7 , a spokesman there said, noting it was well attended.
