Costume Contest Registration begins at 12 noon, and the contest begins at 2 pm.
It's time to whip out your best doggie outfits and costumes and remind your pooch how to strut his or her stuff, because this year's The Whole Enchihuahua Catwalk Costume Contest is coming at you. All dogs are welcome to enter and the first 125 entrants will receive a complimentary Designed for Good hand soap from Method! Prizes include: Luxury package from K9 Scrub Club, a Pet Camp whirlwind doggie weekend stay, a year's supply of Method Home products, certificates from Mijo & Bambi, Happy Hounds Massage and the San Francisco SPCA and more!
The competition is fierce, and amazing prizes and bragging rights are at stake; click here to catch a glimpse of what past pups have shown up wearing! Don't have a costume? No problem! Spin the prize wheel to win one at the event. No dog? We'll help you meet adoptable dogs who would love to go home with you!
This yearly event, presented by 7x7 and the SF SPCA, is a super fun way to help raise awareness for the plight of the mighty Chihuahua. They're the breed most in need of rescue – over half of the dogs in Bay Area shelters are Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes. The Whole Enchihuahua is the capper on a three month-long campaign to find these little guys new, loving homes with free adoptions and help prevent the overpopulation with free spay/neuter at the SF SPCA. Chihuahuas are waiting for your help, healing, and hugs.
There’s something for everyone, two legs or four:
- Show us your smile! Complimentary dental check with an SF SPCA Registered Veterinary Technician
- Ask A Trainer and SF SPCA rally course: Sit. Stay. Play. Ask the SF SPCA behavior expert how to teach that old dog new tricks! Put your dog’s skills to work on a fun obedience obstacle course. Rally promotes good teamwork for dogs of all levels.
- Smooch the Pooch: Alfie wants your kisses! Take a photo and share it with your friends.
- You dirty dog! Meet K9 Scrub Club and get 50% off your 1st visit
- Bespoke t-shirts! Screen print your own.
