  • October 13, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • Animal Haven Soho

VERY IMPORTANT R.S.V.P. PROCEDURE FOR THIS EVENT: example...1 pug + 3 humans + potato salad

Mark your calendars and start preparing your costumes!

Time: 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Fee: $10.00 per pug minimum (if you are a pugless attendee, we would appreciate that you donate nonetheless) The first $200 collected will be donated to Animal Haven Shelter and the balance donated to Curly Tail Pug Rescue so please give generously!

_________________________________________________

Highlights:

* Costume Contest

* Human potluck (foods provided by ALL attending group members)

* Private, indoor, off-leash pug play!

* Tiny Halloween treat bags (compliments of Alecia Bakery NYC and Fetch Earth)!

Last year 52 pugs participated in the costume contest as 70+ adoring humans cheered them on. Be sure you are a part of the group's LARGEST ALL PUG party of the year!

Yes, it is a potluck so EVERYONE is responsible for bringing something yummy to share with all the attending humans. In the best interest of our precious furkids, PLEASE DO NOT BRING ANYTHING CONTAINING CHOCOLATE (the buffet is meant for the humans, but accidents happen and dangerous crumbs are dropped)! PLEASE remember to bring all serving utensils, cups, etc. (Just as last year, everyone should note whatever tasty treat you choose to bring as well as the number of pugs and number of humans attending.) __________________________________________________

CONTEST CATEGORIES (Winners chosen based on COSTUME ONLY! Tricks, etc. will not be allowed):

* Judge Favorite: EVERY judge will choose his/her personal favorite (MULTIPLE winners!)

* Cutest

__________________________________________________

REMINDER: Accidents WILL happen, but YOU are responsible for cleaning up after your own pug! So, remember to keep an eye on him/her. BE VIGILENT AND MINDFUL when eating during events as many pugs have allergies and those scraps you drop could cause health issues to someone's precious pug! IMMEDIATELY dispose of garbage and DO NOT leave plates, napkins or beverages, unattended at any time. NEVER feed someone else's pug without express permission.

__________________________________________________

VERY IMPORTANT: ONLY pugs are allowed at our indoor events UNLESS approved by the organizer. IF your pug(s) happen to have aggression issues of any kind, please be mindful of this and excuse yourself from the event early (if you attend) rather than risk being asked to leave. We have a THREE STRIKES AND YOU'RE OUT policy. If your pug is involved in an "incident" three times during a single meetup, you will be asked to leave.

    thanks for the wonderful nyc hospitality! One, I wish we would have been on time(story of my life) two, that I would have gotten to hug and snuggle every single four-legged animal at the meetup. AND, three-I usually save my pink crocs for my yard and errands-and driving. Was in a rush to get upstairs for the costume contest :\ I had a really cool pair of RL plaid high tops in the car :P, but you kinda got to see the 'real' me. The only thing I care about is my babies!!Great to meet my curly peeps in person. And, one of my FAV fosters, SASSSSY!!!

    Two humans, no pug as we are still working on his manners and anything you need for the potluck that is lacking (just let me know). Question, are puggles invited? If so, we would consider brining Molly.

    1 · October 11, 2013

    • Lin & Lenny the P.

      Yes, you may bring your puggle if she does well in large crowds :) As for potluck items lacking, we always have an overabundance of sweet treats so anything savory or salty would be great!
