Lauren McCall and Heath Gagne enjoyed a breezy day at MUTTS Canine Cantina, 5317 Clearfork Main St., for the Santa Paws event on Nov. 20.
The couple from The Colony brought their English sheepdog, Max, and tiny bichon frise, Hanalei.
“I’ve had dogs all my life,” McCall said. “We know about MUTTS, and we love what they do for animal rescue and what they do to support the community.”
It is the third year MUTTS Canine Cantina hosted a Santa Paws event at its Fort Worth location. The franchise, with locations in Dallas, Fort Worth and, now, Allen, was founded in 2013, and the event offered a chance for dog parents to have photos to prepare holiday cards.
“You know people are always excited to take their kids out for Christmas pictures, and now, dogs are the new kids,” MUTTS Canine Cantina Marketing Manager Chloe Devincenti said. “It is creating an experience for humans and their pets alike.”
The event featured a Santa Claus photo opportunity, food and drinks. The event was free for members of MUTTS Canine Cantina, who pay $16.95 monthly, and all other non-member guests could buy a day pass for $8.95.
MUTTS Canine Cantina also hosted Rahr to the Rescue, a partner to Rahr & Sons Brewery, which fundraises money to aid dogs by selling their beer, and Saving Hope Animal Rescue, a foundation focused on promoting healthier lives for animals.
Both Dallas and Fort Worth MUTTS Canine Cantina locations will host a Santa Paws 2.0 event on Dec. 11 for people who could not make it to their first round. Their new Allen location, 1070 Watters Creek Blvd., also will host its event on Dec. 11.
