Top 5 Reasons
to do the

Monster Mash Pet Dash

1. The Dash!

There will be lots of fun for everyone including an easy half mile pet walk, or as we like to call it, “the costume parade.”  This year, the walk will include a stop at San Antonio Regional Hospital to spread cheer and remind everyone that pets + walking can be part of a healthy lifestyle.  

Plus, we'll also be doing a group Thriller dance later in the day, so be sure to brush up on your dance moves.

2.  You and your pet can dress up and win prizes!

Little kids, big kids, kids at heart, and 4-legged "kids" are encouraged to come in costume and share in the fun of the season with others!  There will be 5 costume contests with prizes for:

  • Best Pet & Human Duo
  • Funniest Pet
  • Most Creative Pet
  • Best Dressed Human
  • Best Team Costume (Humans and/or Pets)

Remember, our 2nd Chance Thrift Shop has costumes for pets, kids, and adults at great low prices.

3.  You can bring a carved or decorated pumpkin and win prizes!

Bring your finished pumpkin to be judged.  There will be 5 contests with prizes for:

  • Scariest
  • Funniest
  • Best Pet-Themed
  • Best Carved
  • Best Decorated

4.  You can win prizes for raising $$$!

Since this is a fundraiser that is also lots of fun, there are GREAT prizes for our top earners. The more $$ you make for shelter pets, the better chance you have of winning these great prizes: 

1st Place Prize:  
Gift Basket with 2 Disneyland Park Hopper Tickets
Plus $100 in Spending Cash
