A Costume Contest for Dogs (and their humans)! “Dress up and enter your costumed canine!” invites Linda Steele, Fleamasters’ Marketing Director. “Whether spooky, funny, or a mix of styles, this contest is your pup’s chance to strut their stuff.” Earn bonus points: Dog owners can add to the fun by dressing themselves up, as well.
“The idea came to us from the stores in our market that sell clothes, hats and other accessories for dogs. They’re extremely popular.” Steele said. “And Halloween seems the perfect time to celebrate man’s best friend. The contest should be a lot of fun to participate in, or watch.”
All of the money raised supports the Gulf Coast Humane Society, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, no-kill, animal welfare organization.
