A LOT of furry fun is on the cards on December 1 and 9 when you get to have your photo taken with Santa and your pet.

Santa will be coming to the Rehoming Centre at 100% Pets, Greenway Dr, Tweed Heads South.

Photos will be taken, with payment and orders taken on the day.

This is a fundraising activity and all money raised from photo sales will go directly to Friends of the Pound Tweed.

"Our photographers are donating their time on the day," said Sonia Trichter, spokeswoman for Friends of the Pound.

"This activity is not suitable for our feline friends due to the potential stress which may be caused by the large number of other animals onsite," she said.

"For the safety of your pets, our photographers and our Santas, please respect these guidelines."

If you have any other questions relating to this fundraising event, please contact 0439 766 243.
