Caped canine crusaders will unleash their power of positivity to help save the day for dogs and cats in need at Mt. Pleasant Animal Shelter’s annual Mutts Mania event, which this year celebrates champions of the underdog with the theme “Be a Super Hero for Homeless Pets.”
Unleash the Love 3 Canine Fashion Show
Wearing comic book couture, dogs will be dressed to impress a panel of high-profile pals to those with paws, who will score each Spot’s sense of style to determine the winners in the categories of Best Owner and Pet Duo, Most Super and Most Creative Costume. This year’s judges are:
- Jordan Hembrough– reality personality from the Travel Channel series Toy Hunter.
- Blake Smith– fashion designer seen on the small screen in the Lifetime reality show Project Runway: Under the Gunn.
- Robert Haussmann– Dogboy NYC, certified professional dog trainer and canine behavior counselor who recently appeared in the NBC special The Secret Life of Pets.
The first 25 fans of Fidos and famous faces to register their Rover for inclusion in the Unleash the Love Canine Fashion Show will be eligible to win a meet and greet with the celebrity judges.
- Along with the canine costume competition, pups can try to win a prize for Fastest Tail-wagger, Best Kisser, Silly Pet Tricks and other contests.
- Spots can show off their skills on an agility course.
- Educational exhibits from NJ SPCA and Morris County Animal Response Team representatives.
- Discount microchipping at $25 per dog.
- Toe-tapping (and tail-wagging) tunes spun by a DJ.
- Mull over Rover-related merchandise on display at a variety of vendor booths.
- Potential pet parents can meet more than 100 adorable, adoptable puppies and dogs from 10 local shelters and rescue groups.
