Rinconada Park (at The Bowl), Palo Alto

Friends of the Palo Alto Animal Shelter, supporters of Palo Alto Animal Services, presents our Second Annual Dog-O-Ween.

The happy banana split (pictured in the poster above) is a winner from last year’s event. This year we expect an even bigger and more hilarious group of costumed dogs and their owners. K-9 Eddie and his handlerRick’s Rather Rich Ice Cream and the new gourmet hotdog vendor, Chez Franc, will provide food. We’ve booked a roaming dog photographer, and you can win wonderful raffle prizes—including a $549 robotic vacuum.

Special guest: Palo Alto Police Department K-9 Eddie and his handler Officer Brad Young!
