There were four categories for prizes in the costume contest: Most Creative; Most Unusual; Scariest; Cutest; plus a Grand Prize for Best All-Around. Pet costumes were on sale at Pet Pantry Warehouse for a month prior to the event. Select businesses along the parade route had trick-or-treat items available for participants. A professional pet photographer was available from whom participants may purchase a souvenir photograph of themselves with their pets.
Allyson Halm, president of Adopt-A-Dog, exclaimed, “We are happy to collaborate with Pet Pantry Warehouse to make this a fun-filled event for people in the area to enjoy an afternoon out with their companion animals. We look forward to this becoming an annual event that will be a unique attraction for Greenwich and the surrounding areas.”
Ari Jacobson of Pet Pantry remarked, “We take pride in helping local pet rescue efforts and shelters. We hope to host a large crowd to support Adopt-A-Dog in its continued effort to find loving homes for dogs and cats.”
