Howl-O-Ween Dog Costume Contest Hosted To Benefit Pet Rescue Nonprofit


Despite the brief downpour, people came out to the Green K9 Sunday for the Howl-o-ween Dog Costume Contest. There were all sizes, dressed up for the event.

Marni Lewis, the owner of the Green K9, which hosted the event, said, “We wanted to do more for pet rescue, and because of the pandemic we haven’t been able to do our events. One of the favorite things we like to do for the community is raising money and support the rescue groups and also people have been home and this just gives them a fun thing to do with their dog. It’s outside. We’re able to social distance and it’s just a fun thing for the kids to come out.”

Proceeds from the costume contest went to Operation Paws for Homes, a nonprofit that rescues, rehabilitates, and re-homes animals from high kill shelters.

Lewis added that the Green K9 will have regular events in the spring that will benefit a different rescue group each time.

Dogs were paraded in front of everyone, and at the end of the event,  awards were given to the best small dog, best medium or large dog, and best dog and human pair.
