Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
The rescue needs volunteers for the upcoming Pictures with Santa at Petco on any of these dates; Saturday, December 8, Saturday, December 15, and / or Sunday, December 16.
Non-profit charity community service/volunteer confirmation letters can be provided to volunteers.
There are two locations each day: Canton (43465 Ford Rd) OR Livonia (29560 W Seven Mile Rd) Petco stores
A dog savvy person is needed to play Santa and others are needed to handle and control the pets and people, position the pets with Santa for their photo, take the pics, or to print out the pics etc. Volunteers also help set up and take down the props etc.
It's fun and you can see all kinds of special pets - we have had little pigs, giant parrots, and of course, dogs, dogs, and more dogs! And - the rescue will receive desperately needed donations for each picture taken.
Petco requires volunteers to be 17 years or older.
