Drew Lachey to Judge Pet Hospital Dog Costume Contest

A plethora of ‘pup’ stars will promenade before a pop star at an upcoming Grammy-themed event that strikes just the right note between fun and philanthropy.

In celebration of Banfield Pet Hospital’s grand opening on South La Cienega Boulevard, Rovers (and cats!) who resemble chart toppers Adele, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Cee-Lo Green, Katy Perry and Grammy host LL Cool J will rally on the red carpet for the “Does Your Pet Look Like a Grammy Nominee” contest. The top three winners will receive a year’s worth of free veterinary care through the Optimum Wellness Plan.

Former 98 Degrees band member/Dancing with the Stars champion Drew Lachey will judge the canine/kitty competition.

A happening with heart, Banfield’s is donating 20 percent of its opening weekend revenue to the SPCALA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles.)

When: February 4, 2012 at 11 a.m.

Where: Banfield Pet Hospital, located inside PetSmart at 330 S Cienega Boulevard in Los Angeles, CA
