Event set during Annual Open House; benefits New Leash on Life
Garr’s Rental & Feed in Mt. Juliet invites the community to its annual Open House on Saturday, Dec. 5, 12 and 19 where pets (and families) can have their photos taken with Santa from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
"Due to the wonderful response and interest last year, we’ve added another Saturday when you can bring your pet for a photo,” said Roy Garr, president and owner of Garr’s Rental and Feed. "It’s great fun for everyone. Many families use this picture on their holiday greeting cards.”
The pet (and family) photos will be taken by a professional photographer; the cost for a 5-by-7 photo is $10. Families can bring their own cameras and take a picture for a sitting fee of $5. A percentage of the proceeds from the photo sessions will be donated to New Leash on Life (formerly known as the Humane Association of Wilson County). New Leash on Life is a non-profit organization and operates solely on grants and private donations. Donations help fund adoption, spay/neuter and educational programs. The organization is currently raising funds to build a state-of-the-art animal shelter and pet adoption center.
“Santa loves animals and so does everyone at Garr’s Rental & Feed,” Garr said. “All pets and their people are welcome to our Open House.”
Pets and their families will be photographed on a first-come, first-served basis between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Saturdays, Dec. 5, 12 and 19. Complimentary refreshments will be served.
Garr’s Rental and Feed is located at 11620 Lebanon Road in Mt. Juliet. It is open Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. and closed on Sunday.
