GREENWICH, Conn. – The seventh annual “Howl & Prowl” Halloween Pet Costume Party in the Park will be held in Greenwich on Sunday, Oct. 26, from 1 to 4 p.m.
The event will start with a parade of dogs in costume at Greenwich Common Park, located at 290 Greenwich Ave. All proceeds from the “Howl & Prowl” costume party go to the Adopt-A-Dog animal rescue organization in Armonk, N.Y.
Sponsored by Pet Pantry Warehouse, the event attracts hundreds of owners and their dogs who come together for an afternoon of fun to benefit pets in need.
“’Howl & Prowl’ has become a successful and really fun way for the Pet Pantry Warehouse to support our friends at Adopt-A-Dog,” said Adam Jacobson, owner of the Pet Pantry Warehouse.
“The awareness and spotlight that ‘Howl & Prowl’ brings to this sanctuary is wonderful. To have the ability to help Adopt-A-Dog with its mission of finding safe, permanent and loving homes for companion animals is a great feeling. We are looking forward to another great year and we encourage everyone to come out and parade with their pets.”
The events of the day will feature a pet costume contest that will award $600 in prizes consisting of various Pet Pantry Warehouse gift certificates to the winners, free refreshments, free photos with pet photographer Geoffrey Tischman and free caricatures by local artist Bill Hernandez.
The Pet Pantry Warehouse has locations in Greenwich, Wilton and New Canaan in Connecticut, and Rye and Larchmont in New York.
