Dalmatian breeder Chris Jackson invites pet owners to a fund-raiser this weekend to have their pet's picture taken with Santa Claus. ''We have a great Santa who will hold the pets and, thankfully, he is a pet person because we welcome all pets, including snakes,'' she says.
Pictures will be taken from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at the Pet Depot on Green Spring Drive in Timonium for $5. Proceeds will benefit the Central Maryland Dalmatian Club and the Humane Society of Baltimore County.
* The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals of Anne Arundel County will hold a craft and gift boutique, tree lighting and an opportunity to have your pet or child's picture taken with Santa Claus for $5 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. The Society is at 1815 Bay Ridge Road in Annapolis. For details, call 268-4388.
