Annual HOWLoween Pawty Promotes Rescue


Dog lovers from across Delmarva have the opportunity to share some Halloween spirt with their four-legged friends on Saturday, October 21. The 6th Annual HOWL-A-Ween event at Fur-Baby Doggie Daycare, Hotel & Spa on Saturday, will take place from 2 to 5pm at their downtown Milford location next to Arena’s. The event will include a costume parade, contest and party for both dogs and their owners.

“It’s a fun way to interact with your dog and celebrate the fall season,” said Fur-Baby owner Sherry Shupe. “Whether in costume or just here for the games, the event is a chance for dog lovers to bond with their fur-babies and other dog lovers.”

During the event, dogs will have the opportunity to taste all-natural, human grade treats and foods while owners can receive information on daycare, hotel and spa services offered seven days a week. The costume contest will have prizes in best dress, most scary, most unique and best team categories. The $5 donation for entry into the contest will be given directly to local animal rescues.

At the event, The Brandywine SPCA of Georgetown and Delaware will have adoptable dogs and cats so families have a chance to learn more information about becoming a rescue family or volunteer. Shupe states that helping raise awareness and funds for local rescue is a core value that has been with the business from the beginning. Volunteering for a local rescue in her spare time, Shupe originally created the boutique on Walnut Street as a store that would provide much needed funding for animal rescue and adoption. Shupe decided to leave her job in the Pharmaceutical Industry and become a retail business owner. The commitment and focus to rescue has never wavered.

Expanding their services since 2011, Fur-Baby Boutique focuses on healthy, organic grocery and items while their Spa offers daily services where pets are pampered. Fur-Baby’s Daycare offers an indoor, cage-free park for dogs of all sizes while their Hotel is a kennel-free facility for overnight stays for dogs and cats. Registered with the the State of Delaware as an official location to receive Delaware Dog Licenses, Fur-baby also offers Discount Vaccination events twice a month where pets can receive vaccinations as well as microchips.
