Santa Claus is coming to Petco!

Santa is going to be at Petco in Federal Way every Saturday and Sunday in December before Christmas from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m.! Bring your dog, cat, or other pets and get a photo of them with Santa. You and your friends or family members can be in the photo too!

Get a 4X6 framed photo for $9.99. If you want additional copies of that pose, the cost is $5 per photo. There are other packages offered as well.



Come by and check out the Christmas tree at Petco. All the dogs entered into our 2016 calendar contest have an ornament on the tree.

2016 Cover

Did you know that all dogs entered in the contest are in the calendar? Another fact: Dublin’s photo was the first one entered in the contest!

Dublin’s owner picked up her copy of the calendar at our Halloween photo event. Her calendar was free since Dublin is our 2016 Cover Dog, but everyone else will pay $10 per calendar.

The calendars are now available elsewhere. You can buy your calendar at one of the following locations in Federal Way.

  • Mud Bay   -  1706 S 320th St
  • Splish-Splash Doggy Bath  -  1606 SW Dash Point Rd
  • Lucky Paws Pet Salon  -  4618 SW 320th St
  • Sacajawea Health Care for Pets  -  1530 S Dash Point Rd
  • Simply Paws  -  35419 21st Ave SW
  • Poverty Bay  -  1108 S 322nd Pl

Everyone can use a calendar and they make great gifts!

November Social Event and Volunteer Meeting

Please join us for a social event on Saturday, November 14 at 2 p.m. We will be holding it at Godfather’s Pizza, 2301 SW 336th St., Federal Way and providing pizza and soda. Meet our board of directors and learn more about us!

One of the goals of Park Pals is working on improvements and maintenance of French Lake Off-leash Dog Park. Our organization is a non-profit and relies on volunteers to accomplish our goals. If you are interested in being a volunteer, learn more about us.

Our biggest fund raising event, Santa Paws, is held in December. Park Pals will be doing a Santa photo shoot at Petco every Saturday and Sunday until Christmas. This is not only our most profitable event, it’s one of the most enjoyable! We get to meet lots of great pets and their owners when they get photos taken. The tail wagging and smiles are contagious!
