If you’re in LA, dress up your dog for a good cause. Join David and Christina Arquette on October 1 at the Haute Dog LA Howl-o-Ween Spooktacular.
Actor David Arquette and his wife Christina are goo-goo for dogs. Join the couple, along with their rescued Basset Hounds, Luna, Dallas and Simone, to celebrate the Halloween season in Oceanside, California this October as they walk the runway in fun costumes at the Haute Dog Howl-o-Ween Spooktacular.
The sixth annual doggie fashion show will be held at The Skirball Cultural Center and sponsored by Canine Companions for Independence. Canine Companions for Independence is a nonprofit that works to enrich the lives of people with disabilities. They provide assistance dogs and support at no cost to those who receive a service dog.
Humans and their pups will swagger down the walkway in costumes and couture, and celeb hairstylist Corey Powell of Benjamin Salone will treat pooches to a fluff-up before they hit the catwalk. The Haute Dogs will get treats and flavored water, and proceeds will benefit Canine Companions.
Canine Companion assistance dogs and their humans will be the highlight of the show, which will also have a cocktail hour and light hors d’oeuvres, as well as a silent auction and shopping opportunities. Animal Communicator Candi Cane Cooper will be there, with activities for humans and pups alike, and the Arquettes will share their “Day of the Dead” collection to complement the Halloween decor from Fred Iberri of Tony Duquette.
Pups who want to model will pay $125, while general attendance is $95 a ticket, all benefiting assistance dogs given free of charge to people who need them. The dogs allow children and adults to live everyday lives and help them with practical tasks like opening and closing doors and retrieving objects for their human. Not to mention, the dogs give love and emotional support that cannot be measured.
