SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, DECEMBER 4-5: SANTA PAWS
10 a.m.-3 p.m. Santa Paws is coming to town so capture a keepsake photo with your four-legged best friend and jolly St. Nick in the Dana Point Harbor. To accommodate COVID-19 modifications and keep volunteers and attendees safe, there is a new reservation system and a limit on the number of walk-up photos for this year’s event. The cost is only $15 for a picture, and you’ll receive the photo immediately. Additional photos can be purchased for $10. Start a family tradition with these keepsake photos of your beloved pets. All proceeds benefit the homeless animals at the San Clemente/Dana Point Animal Shelter. Photos will take place under the covered pagoda. Attendees should park in the wharfside parking lot. Well-behaved dogs are welcome, and all dogs must be leashed. Masks are required by all human participants. Reserve your photo timeslot at petprojectfoundation.org. Dana Point Harbor, 34571 Golden Lantern, Dana Point.
