CANINES TO HELP FIGHT CANCER AT MORRIS ANIMAL INN’S “POOCHES IN PINK” PUPPY PROM
Pink-Themed Puppy Prom on May 4 Will Aid Susan G. Komen For The Cure and Cancer Patients
MORRISTOWN, N.J., April 4, 2011—Morris Animal Inn’s Puppy Prom is “Going Pink” to help raise awareness and donations for breast cancer and cancer patients. The luxury resort and spa for pets is hosting its “Pooches in Pink” Puppy Prom on Wednesday, May 4, and dapper dogs—with or without dates–are invited for the full day party.
The Morris Animal Inn (www.morrisanimalinn.com), located at 120 Sand Spring Road in Morristown, will be awash in pink as it celebrates the four-legged version of a traditional prom party. Pink ties, tutus, tiaras and tuxes are optional, but tails are required.
“Pooches in Pink” Puppy Prom will celebrate and pamper pets while giving the community an opportunity to help pamper local cancer patients by sponsoring already-assembled care packages or donating items to fill the care packages.
Fashionable fidos will be dressed to the K-9’s–some dyed pink and sporting pink paw nails. Dogs will enjoy music and dancing, games and activities, prom photos, doggie delicacies and an after-party “trip to the Shore” in the resort’s indoor pool and Aqua Center.
Morris Animal Inn is partnering with Susan G. Komen for the Cure of North Jersey and there are several ways to participate:
· Bring your dog to the puppy prom and a portion of the $59 fee will be donated to Susan G. Komen.
· Sponsor a care package for a woman battling breast cancer for $25. Sponsor a package before the British Royal Wedding on April 29 and be entered to win a prize worthy of royalty for your pet.
· Make a monetary donation or assist us in gathering items for our care packages:
Biotene mouthwash and gum
Packs of peppermint flavored gum
Eucerin Dry Skin Therapy Creme
QuasyPops or QueasyDrops
Healthy snacks like pretzels or granola bars
Gel cold masks (for face)
Small stuffed animals
