Pet parents can take their furry friends to Ripco Credit Union this weekend for a professional photography session. The suggested donation is $5 and all proceeds will go to the American Cancer Society. In this 2014 file photo, a dog strikes a pose alongside Santa Claus during a similar holiday pet photo event. The press release announcing the 2019 Whisker Wonderland does not indicate that Santa is expected to attend this year’s event.
