Pets are welcome at Walt Whitman Shops Sunday evening for photo with Santa Claus.
Pet photo night is scheduled for 7:30-9:30 p.m. near Saks Fifth Avenue. The visits are scheduled after regular mall hours end so that shoppers allergic to animals won't be affected. (The mall says the are gets an extra cleaning before it reopens to eliminate animal dander that can cause allergic reactions.)
ll pets should be kept leashed or caged prior to visit.
A similar event is set for Sunday evening at Smith Haven Mall, from 6-7 p.m.
