Wag Hotels is teaming up with the Sacramento Area Animal Coalition to host a mixer and pet costume party this Thursday, Oct. 27, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. This is your opportunity to dress up your dog and have someplace to go! Hmm . . . what should your best four-legged friend be? Give it some thought, because the winner will receive a five-day all-day play pass. The event, taking place at Wag Hotels in West Sacramento (1759 Enterprise Blvd.) is free, but donations to the Sacramento Area Animal Coalition are encouraged. But animal lovers probably won’t find it hard to spare some funds for the organization, which focuses on low-cost spaying/neutering for dogs and cats. RSVP (and do so soon) by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (916) 373-0300. One more thing: This mixer is a time for you and your dog to socialize, but remember to bring a leash—for your dog. Woof!
