“We couldn’t be more excited to continue the tradition of combining a fun family day with the ability to contribute to Adopt a Dog, a local organization that means so much to us,” said Pet Pantry Vice President Joshua Roth.

The event will feature photos courtesy of international portrait photography outfit Venture Photography and caricature drawings by artist Bill Hernandez of Party Cartoons, plus countless samples and giveaways by pet manufacturer sponsors, food trucks, face painting and other fun endeavors.

Another fun addition to the event is Pet Psychic Sharon Warner.

Themed music will be curated by in demand NYC artist DJ Cochon De Lait.

Lastly, there will be assorted Balloon animals available for “adoption.”

Keenly aware of there are so many homeless pets across the country, Howl & Prowl’s leading sponsor Blue Buffalo are avid supporters of Pet Pantry events and pet rescue organizations like Adopt a Dog.
