ZEUS' DONATION DRIVE will be happening ALL DAY at Dat Dog Magazine, so stop by any time with food, old towels, leashes, toys or anything that could help out their rescue pups and kitties!

Costume contest categories this year are HOT! Nice prizes and sweet validation will be awarded for the following:

We will have a stellar panel of local artists, costumers and designers to judge, so you know the winning costumes will actually be good. There will be more fun, furry happenings during HOWL-O-WEENIE so STAY TUNED for more details. It's going to be a chill, fun, fall day for the whole fam, so start designing for that "Brady Bunch Kids" group costume for your six toy poodles NOW!
