Winner winner, chicken dinner! The winner for the best costume contest will receive a prize pack sponsored by Poochey Chef!

Saturday, April 30th guests are welcomed to join in on a costume contest, pet parade and an adoption event. These events will be held at Lakemont Amusement Park from noon- 4 p.m. for Pet Day!

Come support the local shelters, Mending Hearts Animal Rescue and the Central PA Humane Society! Both shelters will be accepting donations! All pets must be registered to participate in these events. They can register on the event page on  Facebook.

Lakemont’s Administrative Coordinator Ashley Santichen gives her experience on adopting an animal.

 “I myself have adopted a dog from the humane society, and I’d love to see other pets get adopted from this event. Most shelters are very overwhelmed with animals right now, so we hope that this helps them. I’m very excited to be planning this and to be a part of helping some animals find their forever homes,” said Santichen. 

I can’t wait to see your unique pets! For more information about the event visit, click here.
