Muncie Howloween Party at Emerson Dog Park

Does your dog like playing with other dogs?

Does you dog enjoy wearing funny or silly Halloween costumes?

sit-stay-play In-home pet sitting & more.LLC and Fur in Focus Pet Portraits will be hosting a Muncie Howl-O-Ween Spooktacular at Emerson Dog Park on Sunday, October 27 from 12p – 4p and you’re invited! And what’s better is this is a completely FREE event. But bring some cash so you can bid on our wonderful items in the silent auction.

This dog and family event will have pet specialty vendors, rescue organizations, local business supporters, giveaways, costume contests, dog trick contests and much more. If you have a dog you should definitely get your doggie’s Halloween costume ready and make plans to join us.

 

Let’s Fix Those Kitties!

As our way of giving back to a local animal rescue organization, we’re having a silent auction and all the money raised will be donated to help cover spay and neuter surgeries for the kitties at Action for Animals.

Action for Animals started in 1980. They partner with Best Friends to help stray dogs and cats in Muncie and Delaware County. AFA helps spay or neuter stray animals, they provide medical treatment and adopts them out. AFA has a large TNR program and many people that help trap and foster cats and kittens to get them ready for adoption. AFA is a 501c(3), is led by volunteers and they also have a pet food pantry once per month. To see more about Action for Animals, click here.

Be sure to stop by their table and learn how TNR is done and see how many cats AFA has fixed this year!
