Join us for a HOWLING GOOD time on the banks of the Swan River at The Pine Grove Inn in East Patchogue on Sunday, Nov. 5th for LI-DOG’s Howl-O-Ween Pawty & Fundraiser!

Dress up your pup and yourself in your Howl-o-ween finest and compete in our costume contest and parade plus enjoy music, games, raffles, prizes, delicious food, and lots of fun for the pups!

As a special treat, Doggie U K9 Academy will be on-hand to guide your dog through an agility course! ($5 per dog. Cash only.) Let your dog show off their athletic prowess!

You can’t have a Howl-o-Ween Pawty without a costume contest and parade. People and pups can compete in one of two categories – Best Standalone Pet or Best Pet/Parent duo. There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each category! Pictured above are Harley (the magician) and his “sister” Cassie (the rabbit)—last year’s winners of our Best Standalone Pet contest. Costume contest and parade starts at 1:30 p.m.

You can also sign up to play “Musical Sit” with your dog. Last person to get their dog to sit is eliminated until the fastest sitter—the winner–is left!

Maybe your pup is hiding their inner “Pup-Casso”? If so, let them have a go at the Paw Printing Booth where you can paint a picture together.

Is your pup brave? Then, stop off at the Spooky Photo Booth and capture them in their costume among our “goblins”!

Throughout the event, you’ll be able to order delicious food and Halloween-themed drinks for purchase from The Pine Grove Inn menu. There’s even a doggie menu from which your pup can choose a tasty meal!
