Top 10 Reasons to Do the Muttster Mash!
At Animal Friends, we're so excited to be counting down to the spookiest day of the year. To help you get into the spirit we're throwing a Howl-o-ween celebration you and your pup will be sure to enjoy ... the Muttster Mash! In case you're not sure if it's right for you, here are the top 10 reasons to lace up your sneakers, find the perfect costume for your furry buddy and meet us on Oct. 16 in South Park for the Muttster Mash!

10. Pack Leaders

This year we have not one, not two, but three incredible pack leaders! Ashley Dougherty from WTAE will be starting off the 5k while her colleague Ray Petelin joins WISH 99.7 FM's Cris Winter to lead the way for the Hike for Hounds.

9. Tricks and Treats

We're going to rely on you and your pooch for the tricks, but we'll have lots of hauntingly good treats to offer in our vendor village and food truck alley.

8. Fall is Here!

The crisp autumn air is just around the corner and there's no better way to enjoy the last few warm days of the season than to spend some time outside with your best buddy.

7. Meet Adoptable Pets

Thinking about adding a new member to your family? We'll be joined at the event by some of our very own adoptable pets who would love to meet you.

6. Too Cute to Spook Costume Contest

Now is your chance to show off your pup's style! Prizes will be awarded for the best costumes including the most hair-raising, funniest and best owner/dog combo just to name a few!

5. 5k Run

The Muttster Mash will feature a 5k for the fitness nut in you. We ask that dogs sit out the run, but bringing a friend and your pooch to root you on from the sidelines is strongly encouraged. Who couldn't use their very own pep squad?!

4. Hike for Hounds

If a 5k isn't quite your pace, the one-mile Hike for Hounds is the perfect alternative. Enjoy a leisurely walk with your pup and plenty of other dog lovers and their four-legged friends.

3. Bobbing for ... Hot Dogs?

While this might not sound like the most appetizing activity for people, you can be sure that it will be a big crowd-pleaser with the dogs! Your pooch will also have a chance to unstuff a scarecrow and participate in the pumpkin roll.

2. Halloween Comes Early

Just because Halloween hasn't officially arrived yet, doesn't mean you can't get in on the fun a little early with the Muttster Mash – we know it'll be a boneyard smash!

1. Support Animal Friends

With all the fun and festivities going on, you might forget that every dollar raised at the Muttster Mash benefits the dogs, cats and rabbits at Animal Friends! Don't just register yourself, ask your friends and family to support the cause ... every dollar counts!
