Doggie Halloween 'Pawty' to Celebrate Opening of New UES Grooming Shop
UPPER EAST SIDE — Happy Howl-oween!
The proprietors of Ruby and Jack's Doggy Shack, a new dog-sitting and grooming shop at 1146 Second Avenue and East 60th Street, will host a Halloween "pawty" on Oct. 10 from 6 to 9 p.m.
This fido fiesta, which celebrates the grand opening of Ruby and Jack's, also serves as a dog-adoption drive and shelter fundraiser, as Animal Haven will showcase several pooches in need of a permanent home.
Some events scheduled at the shindig include a pet fashion show, where dogs will wear "lion, witch, lobster and banana" costumes, organizers said.
Pet psychic Lady Shira will also be in attendance to provide "paw" readings.
And Pet Verite, a company which produces custom pet mini-films, will present a screening of "NYC's Most Talented Dogs Dog-u-mentary."
Snacks will be provided to pet parents and their four-legged children, as "tray passed treats for both people and pets will be provided throughout the night."
These include wine, rum and beer for humans, and all-natural fare for the animals, organizers said.
Attendees will also get a free doggie bandana and "hypo-allergenic, fragrance-free" eye wipes.
In addition, professional pet photographer Steve Barkaski will serve as "Pupparazzi."
The invite comes with one strict warning, however: "Dogs welcome, owners must be leashed!"
