Indianapolis Humane Society and PetSuites Teamed Up for “Photos with Santa”


This year, the Humane Society of Indianapolis and PetSuites of Indianapolis teamed together to bring to life “Photos with Santa” for animal lovers to bring their pets in to have a photo with Santa himself. It was an easy way for animal owners to include everyone in their family photo for their Christmas cards and calendars.

The Humane Society of Indianapolis has been serving the community since 1905. They provide vital services to animals and people through sheltering and adopting animals, providing positive reinforcement behavior training for both adoptable animals and owned animals through our public training classes and outreach through our community and shelter programs.

PetSuites Indianapolis is a premiere boarding facility in close proximity to Fishers, Noblesville, and Castleton, conveniently situated on Route 37 just west of I-65. PetSuites as a company has been around for almost 15 years, but their Indianapolis and Fishers location has been around for almost 11 years.

“The resort in Zionsville just opened up in August and then we have another one opening up in January down in Greenwood.” Amanda, the General Manager for the Indianapolis location, said. Their mission is to provide pet owners with a safe and reliable facility to leave their pet companions with when necessary. They understand it is not an easy choice, but they invite guests to tour anytime during business hours and welcome any and all questions one might have about their pet’s stay with them.

Their passion and dedication is to complement their exceptional facility, they only hire the best staff.

“Each member of our PetSuites team is passionate about animals and experienced in pet handling. We take a genuine interest in your pets and will go to great lengths to ensure their comfort while in our care. As an added bonus, we boast the best multiple pet rates in the business--50% off your second and third pet when they share a room. Whether you’re just visiting for a night or joining us for an extended stay, we guarantee your pet will be well taken care of while you are away.” -PetSuites

This is the first year that the Indianapolis Humane Society has partnered with PetSuites for the “Photos with Santa” event and partnering with them was a huge success for them. IndyHumane did receive proceeds from the event. PetSuites’ groomers would offer holiday makeovers for the guests before their pictures (full brush out, nail trim, and holiday bandana or bow) all for $15 and 10% of the proceeds went to IndyHumane. They offered 20% off booking (boarding, grooming or daycare) that were made the day of the event.

“This is our 6th year doing “Photos with Santa” and it gets bigger every year.” Mary Ann Farris, the Advancement Manager of the Indianapolis Humane Society, said. Amanda stated that she was excited to work with the Humane Society to help them also raise money for such a great cause.


Keep a look out for next years dates and locations for the 7th annual “Photos with Santa” event put on by the Indianapolis Humane Society. Remember, that anything extra you do for your pet, like ordering pictures, proceeds will go to the Humane Society! They look forward to seeing you and your furry friend next year!
