This past Saturday, the West Alabama Animal Clinic and STP Images Photography Studio hosted the first annual Costumes & Cocktails Halloween event. The event could NOT have had better weather – sunny, mild and beautiful! We extended thousands of invitations and really had no idea how many folks would show up, but it was truly packed! Over 150 people attended and over 40 dogs in costumes graced the studio and grounds of the STP Images Photography Studio. There were games for the pets, treats for the pets, toys for the pets and a doggie costume contest. Sponsor vendors for our pet products included Merial, VetStreet and ResQ.
In addition to all the pet goodies, we had free servings of the award winning wines from Retreat Hill Winery on hand and the incredible treats from Angie’s Cake Ball Truck. We had a silent auction with several incredible items including a $2,000.00 retail value diamond necklace from our friends at Roshar Jewels.
When pet owners had a chance, they came upstairs to have portraits taken of their pets in their costumes. We photographed nearly 30 pets on Saturday. We’ve posted a few of our favorites below. We can’t wait for next year – we already have some ideas to make it bigger and more awesome than this past Saturday. We also have a GREAT video of the event coming sometime next week from our friend Apollo – watch this site for that video, I promise you it will rock!
