Orphan Pets Seek Superhero Adopters at 6th Annual Event

| May 11, 2018 | 0 Comments

Pet owners and their companion animals are encouraged to dress in super hero costumes.

As comic book enthusiasts prep the perfect costumes for this year’s Comic-Con Convention, local pets are busy creating their superhero “paws-tumes” for Helen Woodward Animal Center’s 6th Annual PAWmicon Convention. The 2018 PAWmicon will, once again, be held one week prior to Comic-Con to allow attendees to take in both types of animated characters. The PAWmicon Convention will be held from 10 a.m. to noon, Sunday, July 15 at Hazard Center, located at 7610 Hazard Center Drive, San Diego, CA 92108.

The family-friendly event includes carnival games, opportunity drawings for Comic-themed prizes, dog-friendly goodies, gifts from Blue Buffalo and the shops at Hazard Center, fun snack options, and the all-important PAWSplay Contest for superheroes and their heroic dogs. Contest participants can dress up as a duo, or simply enter their pawsome pup. The Contest is $10 to enter, and entrants will receive a goodie bag (while supplies last). All funds raised will go to the pets and programs at Helen Woodward Animal Center. Prizes will be awarded for the top three costumes.

“PAWmicon gets bigger and better every year, and we think this will be the best event yet!” said Lisa Gualco, Hazard Center’s general manager. “It’s a pleasure to host such a fun, unique affair that supports Helen Woodward Animal Center’s worthwhile programs that help orphan pets find loving homes.”
