Enjoy Halloween with your dog and help a good cause

| October 24, 2013

COSHOCTON – Dogs and their owners are invited to get into the spirit of the season and help a good cause this weekend.

There will be a community Howl-O-Ween Dog Party from noon to 3 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 26, at the dog park in front of Kids America.

“It’s a great way for owners and their dogs to have fun and help keep kids warm,” said event organizer Samantha Wells from Dogs N Style.

Wells is organizing the party as a way to help raise money to purchase hats, gloves and coats for area youth in the city school district.

“I’m hoping to get a good quantity of money so I can buy as many as I can,” she said.

Wells plans to raise her funds by selling raffle tickets for prizes. The tickets are $5 for a one or $15 for 20 and can be purchased at the party or in advance by calling her at 610-8666.

“First prize will be a totally free spa for your dog,” Wells said. “They will get the whole works.”

The Howl-O-Ween Dog Party also will feature a costume parade with prizes for scariest, cutest and most original.

“We will do the parade first because most dogs won’t want to keep their costumes on,” Wells said. “I’m going to play ‘Who Let The Dogs Out’ on my phone and we will just parade around the park.”

Attendees also will have the chance to play dunking for hot dogs and the bone race and enjoy refreshments with their dogs.

“I’m going to have a cake baked in the shape of a bone for humans and homemade treats for dogs,” Wells said.
