Santa Paws® 2020

The Night Before Christmas

NEW DATE ADDED DUE TO DEMAND - Sunday 13th November 9am - 12:30pm.

Santa Paws® 2020 is now open for bookings!

As the full moon rises over the north pole, Santa Paws® takes a quiet moment in the polar wilderness before heading off on his magical journey around the world. He’ll soon be delivering presents and spreading joy to furbabies everywhere. Rudolph and his reindeer friends are ready and waiting, there are just a few more presents to load onto the sleigh before they take flight…

…for tonight is Christmas Eve.

Santa Paws is looking forward to meeting furkids in Christchurch

As you are aware 2020 has bought some limitations, this means we had to make the call early in our planning of this years events that we would not be travelling to other parts of New Zealand and will be offering Santa Paws® events in our Christchurch studio only. Santa Paws®, his elves and I are very disappointed about this, but let’s all keep our tinsel crossed that we can resume as normal again in 2021.

In the meantime, you lucky people of Christchurch, because of the set-up of the studio here, we will be able to continue with the events even at Covid alert level 3 (though there will be some restrictions in place at level 3), but let’s hope we stay clear of there going forward!

Furtography® and Santa Paws® is proud to support the Kotuku Foundation Assistance Animals Aotearoa again in 2020.

As with previous years a portion from every package sold will be donated to charity. I am proud to support the Kotuku Foundation for Assistance Animals Aotearoa. The KFAAA train and place assistance animals with people who desperately need them all around New Zealand. It’s a charity I am absolutely thrilled to be an ambassador for and one that is making a huge difference to people’s lives every single day.
