6th Annual Bad to the Bone (Pre-Halloween Pet Costume and Adoption Party!)

Come out and support the hairiest runway models to ever see a piece of the Eiffel tower!  On September 28th local New Orleans pet store, Petcetera, will host its 6th annual fashion show fundraiser to benefit the Humane Society of Louisiana and other local animal rescue groups. Join fellow animal lovers for a night of the finest pet & human high fashion costumes!

If dogs in dresses weren't enough, there will be great music and cash door prizes. And, the first 200 guests will receive doggie bags full of treats for pets and great giveaways for their humans.

The doggie fashion show starts at 7:15 p.m., and all the canine models will be up for adoption with the hope to be rescued on the runway! After the fashion show, our guests will have a chance to participate in a Costume Contest for best-dressed pet, best human costume, and best pet/person pair.

Prizes include a six month supply of Natural Balance dog food from Petcetera, a three month supply of Fromm dog food from Petcetera, a three month supply of dog food from Nutro, toys, treats, dog cakes, and gift certificates from many wonderful local businesses such as Slim Goodies and Hands on Therapeutics and more.

Come sample food from several local restaurants while you get down with your hound. Some of the restaurants include Nacho Mama’s, Reginelli’s, Hooter’s, Eiffel Society, Joey K's, Kathy's Crafty Creations, Pinkberry and Mahony’s Po-boys. 

Pet photographer, Scott Stuntz, will be available to take party pics of the participants. Runway costumes will be provided by local designers, including Oliver Manhattan, Daniel Sheridan and DRooL Designs, a doggie style - design house.

Come mingle with our MC Monica Hernandez of WWL TV (Channel 4) and our guest judges.

    I was pleased to see such a good turnout. I hope many dogs are adopted and that a lot of funds were raised. I am so impressed by the many people in our city who contribute so much of their time and hearts to helping animals.

    I'll be there with my gorgeous 6 month old blind and deaf catahoula mix off of death row looking for a home to call her own :) Cross your paws for Delilah!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
