APA! Drive-Thru Holiday Photos

December 12, 2020 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

1156 West Cesar Chavez Street, Austin, TX, USA


We're bringing back our annual tradition of holiday photos for people and their pets, with a few adjustments to keep our team, our guests and their pets safe!

Austin Pets Alive!'s holiday photo drive-thru will be taking place outdoors in our main parking lot (1156 W Cesar Chavez St). Our staff and volunteers will be on hand to guide your vehicle through the drive-thru line and get you to our whimsical holiday setup for your pet-friendly holiday photo session. At the designated point, you can exit your vehicle and stand in front of the backdrop for photos. You can expect a high quality, digital file of your photos in 3-5 business days after our drive-thru! And even though Santa won't be there, we didn't forget the milk and cookies. Everyone who comes to the drive-thru will receive warm, fresh-baked cookies generously provided by Tiff's Treats!

Use the button above to reserve your spot. Each session is $40. Spots are limited and we are expecting to sell out!

    • Only 1 registration per vehicle/family required.
    • Each ticket is assigned to a specific 30 minute timeslot, and we will check you in when you arrive. We cannot accommodate late arrivals so please plan accordingly to arrive during your reserved timeslot.
    • Advanced registration is required as we are unable to accept walk ups. 
    • Don't be a holiday Grinch. Masks must be worn at all times onsite, including while in your vehicle, but may be removed while taking pictures.
    • We know that life happens and plans change. If you need to switch timeslots or cancel altogether, contact us at [email protected]. We are unable to offer refunds as this is a charitable fundraiser on behalf of APA!. Thank you for understanding, and for supporting our pets!


But wait, there's more! Every individual who purchases a photo session OR donates through this page will be entered to win a $250 gift card to Diamonds Direct. One entry per session purchase, one entry per donation. That means that if you purchase a session and add on a donation, you'll be entered twice to win the Diamonds Direct gift card.


Happy holidays, everyone. We can't wait to see you!
