Santa Paws Grotto (Dorset)

Have a photo of your pet taken with Santa, to take home with you on the day!


We are super excited to be hosting Santa Paws Grotto at our Church Knowle Rehoming and Visitor Centre in Dorset this year. Join us on Sunday 4th December from 10am - 3pm for your chance to have a professional photo opportunity with your four-legged friends.

There will be various photo sizes available, which will be printed then and there for you to take home:

  • 7 x 5 for £12

  • 10 x 8 for £15  

Not only is this a great way for you to share a special Christmas memory with your pets, but you will also be helping us to raise money for rescue animals in need. 

There will be a selection of hot drinks available, as well as the chance to purchase our Winter Grand Draw tickets, goodies for your furry friends and plenty of festive cheer to go around! 

You can also make this magical time extra special, by making a wish or leaving a message for a loved one on our Celebration Christmas Tree. 

Make sure you pop Sunday 4th December in your diary and come along for a wonderful day in aid of our rescue animals.

We would like to say a huge thank you to Steve Cole for supporting us with this event by being our fantastic photographer on the day. Please visit his website here to discover his incredible work.
