What is a better way to celebrate Halloween with your furry friend than a Monster Mash Pet Dash? The pet event will be taking place on Saturday, October 29th from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Upland Memorial Park. Gather your pet with other local pup friends on this upcoming Halloween weekend.
The funds from the event will support the Friends of Upland Animal Shelter, a non-profit that commits itself to finding every adoptable pet a home in the area. The non-profit’s funds work toward low-cost adoptions, quality medical care for shelter animals, training for new pet owners, educational programs, low-cost spay/neuter programs, and free micro-chipping for Upland residents.
The event will be rewarding individuals and teams who get in the spirit and raise the most money for the local cause. The first place winner will receive a two-night stay at Bally's Las Vegas with a $100 dining credit at Le Burger Brasserie and a Petmate programmable pet feeder. The second place winner will enjoy a deluxe gift basket from Katie's Pet Depot and a Petmate programmable pet feeder. While, the third place winner receives a Kurgo gift basket and also a Petmate programmable pet feeder.
A costume contest will be a huge hit at the dash. Come in your flashiest and spookiest outfits, and maybe you’ll even win a prize! The costume contest prizes will be given out for the best Team Costume (Humans and/or Pets), the best pet/human duo, the funniest pet, the most creative pet, and the best dressed human.
