New Hope hosts 17th Pet Halloween Costume Contest

Oct. 25, 2013 @ 04:55 PM

HURRICANE -- New Hope Animal Rescue will sponsor its 17th Annual Pet Halloween Costume Contest on Sunday, Oct. 27, at the large shelter at Valley Park in Hurricane.

Registration begins at 1 p.m. and the judging begins at 1:30 p.m.

Alan Hoover from WMXE 100.9 FM will host the event.

There will be seven categories for which pets can be registered. They are: Scariest, Funniest, Prettiest, Most Original, Pet/Owner Look Alike, Former Shelter Pet and Group Costume.

There is a $3 entry fee per category. Trophies are being sponsored by WV Paving and will be awarded for the first, second and third place winners and everyone will receive a participation ribbon.

There will also be a photographer available to photograph your pet (pet owners may also be in the pictures).

Several businesses have donated raffle prizes.

New Hope Animal Rescue is an all-volunteer, non-profit, no-kill foster/rescue group. All of the animals being helped by NHAR are housed in volunteers' homes, but NHAR is looking for property to build a no-kill animal shelter in the Putnam/Kanawha county area.

Proceeds from this event will benefit NHAR's spay/neuter and medical programs as well as New Hope Animal Rescue's mission of building a no-kill animal shelter in the Putnam/Kanawha county area.

For more information, call New Hope Animal Rescue at 304-562-0300.
