Saturday, December 17

10AM -1PM

The Hawthorne Hotel is hosting it’s third annual Santa Paws event on Saturday, December 17 from 10AM -1PM to benefit PALS Animal Life Savers. Bring your dog, cat, lizard, or other critter to the pet-friendly hotel  for a photo session with Santa. The event is free of charge though a $10 donation is suggested. Santa’s elves will be there to assist, and holiday-themed pet accessories will be available to dress up your pet for their photo. If your pet is camera shy, stop by and enjoy light refreshments, browse our pet boutique, and learn more about PALS, Salem’s only all-volunteer feline rescue group. Pets must be leashed or in carriers. People without pets also welcome. Easy parking in the hotel lot. The Hawthorne is located at 18 Washington Square West, on the corner of Essex Street in Salem.
