Event Description

Pet Parade and Mobile Adoption

Dress your pooch and enter our pet parade on April 30! The Rio Grande Shops at the Flying Star Plaza will host the 2011 Summer in the Valley Festival. The monthly events kick off Saturday, April 30 with a costumed pet parade and mobile pet adoption supporting Animal Humane New Mexico.

Could your dog compete with Lady Gaga's style? Is your pet funnier than any YouTube video? Prizes will be awarded for Funniest Costume, Best Fashion Statement, and Best Owner/Dog Costume. A $5 entry fee benefits Animal Humane New Mexico. Participants should enter their pets at facebook.com/ShopsAtFlyingStarPlaza or arrive at the shops by 12:15 on Saturday, April 30. Winners will receive a $25 gift card to Flying Star Cafe, Lilly Barrack, or Bookworks.

No pet? No problem! Find your match between 10am and 3pm at Animal Humane's Mobile Adoption. The day's activities include something for everyone: live music, Giggles the Clown, door prizes, and more!

Choose from several ways to support Animal Humane. In addition to the $5 parade entry fee, the Rio Grande Shops will donate 10% of sales between 12pm and 4pm to Animal Humane New Mexico. Don't forget to visit Flying Star to buy a cookie and save a pet! For the entire month of April, every Animal Humane logo cookie sold will help support animals in need.
