This Saturday, October 25, there are two terrific events where you can have fun with your dog for a good cause.  They don’t conflict, so why not go to both!

From 10am-1pm, Relay for Life and the American Cancer Society have a Bark-for-Life event in Atherton, at Holbrook-Palmer Park.  The event features dog walking in Halloween costume, along with an opening ceremony, kid’s trick-or-treating, a photo booth, “wag bags” for registered dogs, and vendor fair.

The cost to register is $20 per dog household, or $10 for a single dog.   The event supports ACS programs and services, and the event promotes cancer awareness and education.

From 1pm-3pm, the Friends of the Palo Alto Animal Shelter, along with the City of Palo Alto, have the 2nd Annual Dog-O-Ween at Rinconada Park.  It’s FREE, and you can win prizes by participating in the dog costume contest.

Also you can enter their raffle to raise funds for the shelter and have a chance to win some great prizes.  I blogged about this already over at Palo Alto Online, see more info and some terrific photos from last year.
