Sunday night we celebrated Halloween the only way we know how- with the dogs! In partnership with the Maine Mall Sephora, we held our first annual Canine Spook-Tacular. This dog-friendly private shopping event was a howling good time, with almost $800 raised for the ARLGP!

Our Canine Spook-Tacular served as both a fundraiser and as a celebration of our year-long collaboration with our local Sephora store. At the beginning of 2014, we were lucky enough to be chosen as the partnering non-profit organization through the Sephora Values Inside Out Program. This honor, bestowed upon us by the Maine Mall Sephora team, was a privilege we are incredibly thankful for. Throughout the year Sephora cast members have volunteered at numerous ARLGP events and fundraisers, lending their time and talents to support the ARLGP animals and mission. They’ve become advocates and ambassadors for adoption of our local shelter animals, and have awarded us grant funds to support our shelter operational costs. It is hard to express just how much we have appreciated their generosity and support.

Sunday’s Halloween event marked the conclusion of our 2014 partnership with Sephora, with a frightfully fun night of shopping, raffles, face painting, green carpet photos, costume contests, and lots of howling festivities. Thank you to everyone who attended, and for supporting the ARLGP!

We would also like to extend a very big thank you to Joanne Minor, of Minor Moments Photography, for capturing the arrival of our four-legged (and two-legged) guests on our green-grass runway. The photos came out spectacular! Be sure to check out Minor Moments Photography, to view photos of the event once they are uploaded!
