This October, amongst all the parties for ghouls and goblins, one event, the seventh annual Muttster Mash, will be the premier occasion for all the four-legged friends in Utah. This costume party and potluck dinner is open to everyone and their canine companions with a small suggested donation of $5 to raise money for three dog rescues.
The event will be on Oct. 15, 6-9 p.m., at Dogs R Us, 1458 S. Main Street in Salt Lake City. There will be a silent auction, a chili cook-off and of course prizes for the best dog costume and trick. All the funds raised will go to support the Rocky Mountain Great Dane Rescue, Perfect Pointers and the Utah Friends of Basset Hound.
“It’s just a really great time and we want everyone to come, even if you don’t have a dog; come and see all the great costumes,” said owner Jeff Peay. “There are not a lot of events where you can take your dog to a party, and all the money we raise will go to help the three dog rescues.”
Last year the Muttster Mash helped raise money for Equality Utah and everyone, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity is invited to participate. The event is expected to attract more than 50 animals and human companions.
Dogs R Us and QSaltLake are both sponsors of the event, and donations are being accepted for the silent auction.
