On Sunday December 13th, Tender Loving Care Pet Nursing Hotel hosted a ‘socially distanced’ Christmas Photo Event at the Fairlawn Plaza Mall to help usher in the Christmas season and spread some good cheer after a very tough year.
TLC was joined for the festivities by the Topeka Christmas Elf who came out to help us raise money for the Topeka Helping Hands Humane Society! Joining the Elf was a professional photographer who took Christmas Photos of the furbabies and their parents. Pet Parents and friends also captured the moment with their own cameras!
We used a bench in the mall which had a beautifully decorated backdrop featuring Santa and his helpers. The pictures of the dogs with their parents were just precious! Our own Kat Goeke was tasked with being the Dog Whisperer and she did a great job staging the dogs and keeping them in place while the pictures were being taken!
Our thanks to the Top City Costumes for supplying the beautiful elf costume, Zane Wech for staying in the costume for the day, trading off with Quincey Kidd. They were both pretty good dog whisperers as well. Our wonderful photographer, Alona Harrison of Sauced by Lo did an excellent job getting the best picture possible of each dog even if that meant taking multiple pictures. We are also thrilled to thank Randy Austin of The Fairlawn Plaza mall for allowing us to host this event at the mall.
TLC Team members Janea Tremmel, Kat Goeke, Ciji Locust, and Elise Haenni were also on hand to help keep things moving along! Thank Goodness.
WIBW-TV aired a story that night and promised the Topeka community that if they missed this event, there was no need to worry – “TLC will be hosting a special event for Easter”! And so, we will! Join us on Saturday, March 27th from 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM when we will host an Easter Bonnet Parade & Contest at Tender Loving Care Pet Nursing Hotel, 2500 SW 17th Street Topeka, KS 66604.
We’re expecting everyone – furbabies and parents to show up in their easter best! See you then!
