It is that time of year once again, prom season! This year’s Helen Woodward Animal Center (HWAC) Alumni Puppy Prom has been scheduled for Saturday, May 9th from Noon until 1:30 p.m. at 6461 El Apajo Road in Rancho Santa Fe, California. You don’t want to miss it since the “promposals” to Puppy Prom are paws-itively precious! This alumni event will have orphan and adopted pets taking to Twitter.
Typical “promposals” are going on across the country as young people look forward to prom season and to crowding dance floors everywhere. There will be numerous Twitter-feeds and Facebook posts that will target young ladies and gentlemen that will become the perfect date for their intended partner.
The same goes for the critters at HWAC that are hoping to attend the upcoming Alumni Puppy Prom to take place in less than two weeks. These critters have been sending out creative “promposals,” too. They are not just seeking a one-event dance partner, but they are hoping to find their forever soulmate that will help their dance last throughout their lifetime.
Now is the time to grab up your favorite adopted friend and come rub furry shoulders with other alumni that will also attend this Third Annual Puppy Prom on May 9th. HWAC is ready once again to welcome adopted pups as they gather around the punch bowl and shake it on the dance floor at this tail-wagging event.
The Center’s Alumni, as well as adopted canines from any other rescue facility, are all invited to this FREE Prom-themed party. Junior and Senior pooches will be able to participate in such time-honored activities as the crowing of a Best Dressed “Prom King and Queen.” For those that would like to participate, the cost is $10 per entry.
Photo-frenzied family member will be able to snap picture-perfect snaps against a variety of classic prom backdrops. The dogs may be snacking on cookies, lapping up some punch, pinning on puppy corsages or boutonnieres that can be made at creation-station for the ‘kids.’ There will also be opportunity drawing tickets available with a chance for puppy parents to win their pooches some great prizes.
All the proceeds from the activities of the day will go to support the orphan animals at HWAC to help further the action of getting some great animals into loving homes and to help educate pet parents along the way.
A group alumni photo will also be taken of all the guests. It will be proudly displayed at the Center and on their website. This photo will honor the beloved extended family of puppies and people that have been good enough to adopt their beloved canine.
In the previous two years, the Center’s prom-themed “paw-ty” united former orphans and their families from “graduating classes” as far back as 2004. The dogs will be decked out in adorable dresses, tuxes, boutonnieres and painted paw-nails. They will return to their old barking grounds to show off their forever families and to reunite with former HWAC “classmates.”
“It means a lot to us to see these wonderful families who have opened their homes to our orphan pets. We also really like to see those fuzzy faces again. We don’t forget them,” stated Helen Woodward’s Animal Service Manager Ed Farrelly.
Although the feline population will not be present, HWAC wants to show them that they love them and want to honor them, once again, with a Best Dressed Kitty King and Queen Contest. If you would like to enter your rescued kitty, all you have to do is to send a photo of your feline, dressed in all their prom finery, to email@example.com.
The kitty photos will be posted on the Helen Woodward Animal Center social media sites. Then, at the actual prom, the photos will be voted on by the attending prom-goers. Then, prizes will be awarded to the Best Dressed Kitty Prom King and Queen.
