City Bark and Camp Bow Wow (CBW)  partnered to throw a pet Halloween party to benefit their businesses, Grosse Pointe Animal Adoption Society (GPAAS) and the community on October 30.

People with pets for children were the main target audience, according to City Bark’s owner and South alum, Jamie Judson. Another objective for the party was to raise money for GPAAS, she said.

CBW came to City Bark in the hopes of throwing a pet Halloween party, Judson said. GPAAS benefited from the $5 pet costume contest entry fee. Other festivities included a photo booth and treat stations.

Every pet in attendance wore a costume, many bought at City Bark.

“My favorite part was seeing everyone come with their pets dressed up. There were a lot of creative costumes,” Judson said.

Michele Dakho, CBW brand ambassador and certified Behavior Buddies Trainer, brought smiles and advice to pet owners at the party. Dakho greeted guests and took their photos for both the costume contest and the owners’ enjoyment.

CBW’s joint sponsorship of the Halloween party brought in a crowd that surpassed expectations, according to Dakho and Judson. They agreed the party was a success for their businesses and the community.
