Name: Max's Howl-o-Ween Doggie Photos and Costume Contest, a Fundraising Event for Max's Helping Paws Foundation
Date: October 21, 2018
Time: 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM PDT
Event Description:


Halloween is now firmly on the horizon, and while that fact has many of us thinking of ghosts, goblins, pumpkins and candy, pet owners everywhere are also preparing. WHY? Because if you're a dog owner who loves to show how Howl-O-Ween "fashion-forward" your pup can be, much of your Halloween excitement can be summed up in two words: Howl-O-Ween Costumes!

On October 21, in Carmel Plaza, gather up your pup in the best costume you can put together and have some fun!  

When you purchase a ticket, you'll get a pro from Say Woof! Petography to take a few photos, and if you purchase a time slot that gets you entered into the contest, you can walk an "official" runway during our costume contest, be entered to win very cool prizes from Carmel Plaza merchants and some other local vendors and donate to the mission of a great local animal nonprofit. Max's Helping Paws is a financial lifeline for responsible pet owners with a pet in a heath crisis.

A great day to enjoy the beautiful fall Carmel weather, have some fun and show off your pup.



  • When you purchase ahead of time, you can purchase $25 tickets associated with the time slot that's convenient for you between 11am and 2:00 pm. Only sittings BEFORE 12:30 can participate in the costume contest & runway. $30 for tickets purchased onsite.

  • Your $25 ticket entitles you a brief photo sitting with backdrop, props and access to images through Say Woof! Petography. We will have ready, by October 24, a "photographer's choice" 5x7 photo from the day to be picked up at Suds n Scissors, as well as online access to other photos you can purchase or apply to fun items such as shirts, magnets and mugs

  • Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your sitting so you can check in.

  • Once onsite, you can choose which category you would like to compete within. All participants who have had their sitting before 12:30PM AND participate in the runway judging will be automatically entered into the BEST COSTUME category. The choices are: SCARIEST COSTUME, BEST LOOKALIKE PET & OWNER and MOST ADORABLE.

  • All profits will be donated to Max's Helping Paws Foundation, an IRS 501c3.



By registering for participation in this event, you agree to the below:

  • All dogs are to remain on a leash at all times.

  • Female dogs in heat are not allowed of course.

  • Owners are responsible for cleaning up after their dogs.

  • We reserve the right to remove people from event should they or their dog be causing problems to others.
