Williamsburg Area Faith In Action Holds Fund Raiser
To Benefit New Visiting Therapy Dog Program

(Williamsburg, VA) - Faith in Action is kick-starting its upcoming Visiting Therapy Dog program by having a professional photographer offer Christmas Portraits With Your (Furry) Family Members!

Portraits will be taken on Saturday, December 5, 2105. Sittings are available from noon to 5 p.m.that day at St. Francis Pet Resort, located at 104 Tewning Road, in Williamsburg. Sittings must be scheduled in advance by calling Joan Lucera at 757-784-0789; space is limited.

D and Me Photography will offer a variety of portrait packages to choose from and pet portraits can be with or without human members of the family!

According to Rita Smith, Faith In Action's Executive Director, "We are so excited to have the new Visiting Therapy Dog Program open in early 2016. Animals alleviate loneliness, feelings of helplessness and depression. That is so important for our care receivers who may live alone and love animals but are unable to have pets of their own. We feel this will become a very popular program. We thought the Christmas Pet Portraits would be a fun way to raise awareness and funds for the brand-new program!
