Support Best Friends and get a picture of your pet!

On September 27, thousands of Walgreens stores across the country will host a Pet Photo Shoot that will benefit Best Friends Animal Society.

People are encouraged to bring their beloved cat, dog, ferret, bird, iguana and all other types of companion animals to their local Walgreens to have their photos taken together.

There’s no charge for the photo shoot itself, but you have the option of spending $5.99 for a photo, photo CD, pet treats and photo coupons. Walgreens will donate $5 of each sale to animal welfare organizations: half to Best Friends and half to Delta Society.

“We are very pleased to be selected as a beneficiary of Walgreens’ Pet Photo Shoot promotion,” says Paul Berry, Best Friends chief executive officer. “Walgreens’ support of Best Friends is generous and most appreciated.”

Walgreens, based in Deerfield, Illinois, is the nation's largest retail pharmacy chain.

Supporting animal welfare efforts fits with the company’s mission to promote general physical and emotional wellness, according to Martha O’Bryan, manager of community affairs. “Through their many programs, these organizations seek to assist both people and animals alike when they are at their most vulnerable and defenseless,” O’Bryan says.
