Howl-O-Ween Dog Walk and Expo, Katy, TX, October 27, 2012

A real Halloween treat for our tail-wagging chums, pups and people are invited to a day of play for a paws cause.

Celebrity Spotting

Reality personality Erica Rose will be among the animal lovers who will help to create a better reality for shelter pets at the fifth annual Howl-O-Ween Dog Walk & Expo.

The socialite, who starred in The Bachelor season nine, Bachelor Pad seasons two and three and the VH1 series You’re Cut Off, will step into a role of a celebrity judge alongside Council member Carol Adams, KTRK meteorologist Casey Curry and Kindermusic’s Kathy Ricke to choose the top dog among the many masquerading canines in the Howl-O-Ween Costume Contest.

Other Activities

A happening with heart, Citizens for Animal Protection– a non-profit which has provided comfort and care for homeless pets in the Houston area since 1972– will benefit from the event, which will also include a one-mile constitutional for canines and their human companions.

The morning of dogged devotion continues with advice from pet nutrition experts, groomers and trainers; door prizes from Rover Oaks Pet Resort and LaCenterra, and adorable adoptables from Houston-area animal rescue organizations.

When: October 27, 2012 from 8 a.m. – 11 a.m.

Where: LaCenterra at 23501 Cinco Ranch Boulevard in Katy, Texas
