SOS Rescue to host canine costume contest
BATON ROUGE - Andrea from SOS Rescue was back in the studio today with news of an upcoming event and yet another furry friend looking for a good home.
SOS Rescue is a local non-profit that looks to find suitable homes for lost and abandoned pets through the generous donations of the public and hard work from dedicated volunteers.
Sir Hugo is a felicitous feline with a disposition that more closely matches that of a dog than a cat. He is seven months old, obviously playful and will probably end up as a large adult cat. To learn more about adopting him, be sure to check out SOS Rescue's website.
The holidays are big time for the animal adoption group, and they are getting things started this year as SOS Rescue will be out at the BREC Trick & Treat event this coming Friday. They helped organize the Halloween-themed event and will be taking over the Raising Cane's Dog Park at Forest Community Park located at 13900 South Harrell's Ferry Road from 6-8 p.m on Friday, Oct. 24.
Andrea says the marquee pet costume contest drew a large gathering last year and even the pet owners got into the action. As a result, she says they have added a best "family" costume prize this year for pet owners who want to get into the spirit and dress up to compliment their pet. Plenty of prizes and lots of dog interaction are to be had. The costume contest is free to enter with the judging starting at 7 p.m. You can get directions to the park by clicking here.
While dogs will be the center of attention at Friday's event, SOS Rescue has many cats, including Sir Hugo, up for adoption. If you are certain you can provide a loving home for one of these animals in need, be sure to visit the SOS Rescue website to check out their adoption requirements and see what pets are currently looking for homes.
