MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

If you're the kind of pet owner who dresses your furry friend in Christmas sweaters, bow ties, and Santa hats, you won't want to miss an event happening in Collierville this weekend. I mean, why should children be the only ones who get to tell Santa what they want for Christmas?

Santa wants to meet your pets on Sunday, November 13 at Bumpus Harley-Davidson, located at 325 Byhalia Road, between 12 p.m. and 3 p.m. It's your chance to get the purr-fect photo taken to use for your Christmas cards.

The cost of this special event is a $10 donation to Memphis Pets Alive!, a nonprofit organization focused on rescuing and finding homes for healthy and treatable animals who are at risk in a shelter. 

Make sure you bring your pet on a leash and, of course, your kids are welcome to come, too! Holiday-themed accessories for your pet will be available to borrow for the photos, which will be available in electronic form for download following the event.
