Dog lovers from around the Bay Area are invited to attend The Whole Enchihuahua, a special breed of event presented by the San Francisco SPCA and 7×7 magazine on Saturday, June 2, 2012 at Dolores Park.
“Chihuahuas are a breed most urgently in need of rescue,” says Dr. Jennifer Scarlett, SF SPCA co-president. “Forty to 50% of dogs in Bay Area shelters are part Chihuahua. Our second annual The Whole Enchihuahua is our way of raising the profile of the Chihuahua overpopulation problem and giving everyone an excuse to spend the day among adorable costumed dogs. There are so many great festivities planned, it’s definitely an event you don’t want to miss!”
The Whole Enchihuahua runs from noon until 4 pm, with a costume contest open to all breeds starting at 1 pm. Contest registration is from noon to 1 pm. The first, second and third place winners will receive amazing prize packages from Wag Hotels, Nuena Photography, Mijo & Bambi, Yap Wraps, The San Francisco SPCA and 7×7.
During the event, cats, dogs, birds and bunnies will be available for adoption from the SF SPCA and partner rescues. There will also be grub from the Off the Grid food trucks, and Alice the Chi will be ready to pucker up at Smooch the Pooch kissing booth.
A Google+ photobooth will also be set up, ready to send photos of costumed critters across the web, and a cookie decorating station will give everyone a chance to craft a delicious snack.
