Dog lovers rejoice! The much-anticipated Bark-A-Boo, benefiting Paws on the Ground Colorado, returns to Schomp Subaru in Aurora on Sunday, October 29, 2023, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The Halloween-themed celebration will feature a variety of activities for pet owners and their fur babies, as well as an adoption clinic and other fun opportunities to support Paws on the Ground Colorado.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their pups dressed to impress. There will be a costume contest. The top three most decked out dogs will be awarded with prizes.
Have fun with a face painter and balloon artist, bid on a silent auction item, or get a new bandana to show your support for Paws on the Ground Colorado. All proceeds will benefit the organization.
A Halloween-themed event wouldn’t be complete without candy. Trunk or Treat from the back of several Subaru vehicles, which will be filled with sweets.
This event is free to the public, however, attendees are encouraged to pre-register for the event with a $20 donation to Paws on the Ground Colorado. All guests who pre-register will receive a special Bark-A-Boo gift at Check-In. You can register here through PayPal.
For those looking to bring a new pet into their home, Paws on the Ground Colorado will have dogs and puppies available for adoption, as well information about becoming a foster parent.
Paws on the Ground Colorado is very focused on matching animals with the perfect home, so an application process is required. Those interested are encouraged to pre-apply online prior to the event.
