Deny it all you want, but Christmas is quickly approaching.

To get into the spirit, get your pet’s photo taken with Santa Paws at the Westgate Shopping Centre Friday and receive a photo in a holiday frame. And more importantly, you’ll be supporting the animals at the Ottawa Humane Society with your donation.

The event is being held at Westgate from 4 to 8 p.m. Friday, next Saturday and Sunday at the Lincoln Fields Shopping Centre, and the Elmvale Mall the weekend after.

Photos are $15 each or $10 for OHS-adopted animals, with all proceeds benefiting animals in need at the OHS.
