It was a fun mix of cute, scary, advocacy-laden and the downright bizarre in terms of pet costumes as more than 100 pets and their owners trooped to the Century City Mall Event Center on October 26, 2014 for “Scaredy Cats and Dogs : Year 11” – the annual Halloween fundraiser of The Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS).
Dog trainer Chardy Ang opened the show with a dance number with his border collie Cheska. He later showed off his other trained dogs including Andi, aspin Kimchi who he adopted from the PAWS Shelter and Toffee, Alpo’s brand ambassador.
In celebration of World Animal Day 2014 and the feast of St. Francis of Assisi, PAWS and Tiendesitas will hold a grand Pet Blessing at the Tiendesitas Activity Center on October 5 (Sunday) at 5pm.
PAWS invites all pet owners and animal lovers to celebrate this special day by having their companion animals individually blessed by Father Jose Antonio Paras, SDB.
Registration starts at 3:00 PM. Special awards for best dressed pet will given during the 4:00 PM program before the mass.
Native pet owners are encouraged to bring their pets because the first 50 aspin and first 50 puspin registrants who will purchase an "I AM BLESSED!" pet bandanas at the venue will receive vouchers for a FREE spay-neuter procedure at the PAWS clinic.
Vouchers are transferrable to fellow aspins or puspins which means the animals at the venue need not be the ones in need of the spay-neuter procedure but candidates must also be native dogs and native cats.
See you there!
