The holiday season is here, let’s rejoice and applaud, for your pets are in for a real treat with a visit from Santa Paws!

Back by popular demand, Santa Paws will be making a visit to Leesburg Veterinary Hospital on Saturday, December 3, 2016, from 3:00 – 7:00PM!

December is always such as a fun time at LVH.  Shortly after Thanksgiving, Dr. Strickland and his wife Kim, will deck the hospital halls with the colors and magic of the season, literally turning the practice into a winter wonderland.  Not only does the warm and inviting atmosphere put all of us in the holiday spirit, but it’s the perfect backdrop for one of our most favorite annual events – Pictures with Santa Paws!

Every year, Santa Claus Paws makes an appearance to greet some of our wonderful clients and patients.  And in most cases, even the most squirmy dogs or skittish cats are on their best behavior for their photo op with the Big Man. (No one wants to end up on Santa’s naughty list.)  This event is particularly special for us because it benefits LVH’s Benevolent Fund.

With names like “Cranberry” and “Giblet,” these cute kitties are always in the holiday spirit!

We all know how difficult it can be to make decisions regarding veterinary care when finances are limited.  The LVH Benevolent Fund is a non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) endowment that provides support to those clients who cannot afford veterinary care.  This fund has been a source of hope for families, especially during times of critical and end-of-life care.

Hmm, maybe this dapper boxer, Apollo, is asking for another tie?

For the past four years, Pictures with Santa Paws has been an extremely successful event, as our clients have donated thousands of dollars to the Benevolent Fund.  We are continually amazed and thankful for our client’s dedication to not only their own pet’s health but the well-being of the entire Loudoun County pet community.  Revisit  our wrap-up of the event and check out our festive furry friends with photographs taken by our talented Client Care Specialist, Julee, here.

To take part in this event, call the hospital and reserve your spot for the afternoon of December 3th.  Photos are typically scheduled every half hour between 3:00 – 7:00PM.  

If can’t make it for pictures but are thinking about donating to a charity this holiday season, please consider our Benevolent Fund.   Your generosity may help save a special friend for someone in need.  To download our donation form, visit the “Hospital Forms” page of our website, or CLICK HERE.  Thank you for keeping the spirit of Christmas alive and truly embracing our motto of “Caring is what we do best!”
