Great Danes, turtles…all pets to sit with Santa


Pets can sit on Santa’s knee from this weekend, have their photos taken and pet owners can talk about what they will give their pets for Christmas.

Santas will sit in Animates’ stores as a special treat for pet owners and pets until Christmas.

Animates’ spokeswoman Kerin Hopkinson said they expect cats, dogs, and all sorts of pets to visit their stores to see Santa from this Saturday through to Christmas.

``We have had more than 1500 pets come sit on Santa’s knee and have their photo taken from previous years. We’ve had turtles, Great Danes, goldfish, you name it.’’

The 10-year-old Animates pet supplies retailer has stores in Christchurch (3), Wellington (2), Tauranga and Palmerston North and employs almost 100 people.

But the numbers swell in December when Santas are required in each store.
