BARNABY STREET SHOPPES HOST PET COSTUME CONTEST AND SPONSOR PET ADOPTION AND SHELTER FUNDRAISING ON HALLOWEEN
SURPRISE, Arizona (October 22, 2012) The merchants of the west valley’s only retail incubator, Barnaby Street Shoppes, invite the public to participate in a festive, pet themed Halloween celebration and fund raiser. Pet owners are invited to enter their favorite pet in a Halloween costume contest and parade on Halloween, October 31, 2012 at 3pm.
Costumed pets will parade through Barnaby’s walkways with their human(s). Anyone not entered in the contest is eligible to vote for the best costumed pet. The winning pet and owner will receive a prize from PetSmart.
All visitors to Barnaby Street on Halloween are welcome to enter a drawing for a $50 gift certificate to Barnaby Street Shoppes to be used at one or more resident businesses.
The winning pet will be announced at 4pm; the gift certificate drawing will occur immediately following. Both winners must be present to win.
Pet owners are permitted to take pictures of their pet with the Shoppes’ mascot, Baby Barnaby, a lovable six foot tall, hot pink stuffed monkey. Light refreshments will be available.
Admission is free for all. Donations of pet food and spare change are being collected by R&R Craft Creations and Bottlecap Productions, a Barnaby Street merchant. The donations will be shared between the 4 Paws Rescue and Sun City Animal Shelter. Shauna’s Pet Spa will be on-site with clean, healthy dogs in need of good homes. All involved animal shelters are no-kill locations and in need of community support.
