FOR all you pets out there - if you're a dog that barks, a bird that chirps or just about any other pet, here are some special words - Santa Paws is coming to town.

In what has become a tradition almost as highly anticipated as Christmas itself, Santa Paws is coming to the RSPCA Animal Care Campus at Wacol next Saturday and Sunday.

Pets and their owners are invited to come along and have their photo taken with that animal-loving man in the red suit - Santa Paws himself.

There will also be a barbecue, raffle, plenty of specials on gifts for furry friends at World for Pets and lots more fun for the kids.

Thanks to RSPCA's friends at Zoo Studio, there will be a variety of photo package options available. Payment and orders will be taken on the day. This is a fundraising activity and all money raised from photo sales will go directly to RSPCA Queensland.

Zoo Studio is generously donating their time on the day and, as such, the average session time is between five and seven minutes.

Please note this activity is not suitable for our feline friends due to the potential stress that may be caused by the large number of other animals at the Animal Care Campus.

If you have any questions phone the events team on 3426 9943 or email them at events@rspcaqld.org.au.

Otherwise, prepare to meet Santa on Saturday, November 24, and Sunday, November 25.

Bookings are essential and can be made at rspcaqld.org.au.
