Mall allows pets pics with Santa

This year, even your furry babies can get their photo taken with Santa.

Four Simon malls in the Atlanta area, including the Mall of Georgia, are offering pet photo nights with Santa this holiday season.

Shoppers can bring their pets — excluding exotic animals — to pose with Old Saint Nick, during special hours.

For the Buford mall, the events are set for 6:30 to 8 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 17 and 7:30 to 9 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 8. Because the mall is closed during those hours, people must enter and exit through the entrance nearest to Nordstrom.

Similar events are also planned at Lenox Square, Northlake Mall and Town Center at Cobb.

Mall officials ask that pets be in a carrier or on a leash.
