Santa Paws returns for his annual visit to the Santa Barbara area.
Bring your two- and four-legged family members for holiday photos with the “canine” Santa Paws. Visitors can receive prints of their personal photo with Santa Paws, or have the image sent digitally, and instantly, via email.
All proceeds from the event benefit DAWG, the Dog Adoption & Welfare Group. Located at 5480 Overpass Road, DAWG is the area’s only “no-kill” shelter.
Funds from Santa Paws photos provide veterinary care to Santa Barbara’s lost and abandoned dogs awaiting their forever homes.
