Santa Paws a great cause

Group of Mackay Dachshund Owners getting one epic group photo with Santa

What a massive day! While we are always more than happy to donate our time for RSPCA Mackay, Santa Paws on the weekend was a big one!!

We had over 210 photo sessions, 20+ RSPCA volunteers and 2 Santas – but only 1 photographer. It was an incredible day though – so many happy and playful dogs, and even some cats, lined up with their owners ready to jump on Santa’s lap. Looking through the images has also been a great experience – each pet showing off their own little unique personality, such a special memento for any owner.


A huge thank you to all of the RSPCA Mackay volunteers (including our Santas – which feels weird to write in plural!), the great variety of supporting stalls who came along (Vintage Kiss, Barking Mad Treats and Collars by Fi to name a few) and to all of those who waited patiently, some for more than 2hrs, to get that special photo of your furbaby.


We truly hope you are happy with the final result when you pick up your images from the RSPCA fundraising location at Mt Pleasant Shopping Centre, from Monday 4th December.  If you purchased digital images, these will be emailed to you during that same week.


PLUS – another huge thank you to all of those who purchased our 2018 animal lovers calendar on the day. The calendar is 100% locally photographed, designed and printed – and all profits go to the RSPCA Mackay Adoption Centre, so thank you for supporting local and we hope you love the calendar as much as we do!  If you haven’t had a chance to pick one up yet, the calendars are also available for sale on our site and there are some local stockists where you can pick up a copy in person as well.
