We encourage guests to dress for the theme! This year’s theme is Woof 66: A Journey to Finding a Forever Home. Each year, 75% of our 1,000 guests dress in theme. Feel free to get creative with a full costume or go casual with khaki pants or a sun dress. Accessorize  with binoculars, sun hat or a road map in hand!

Don’t be afraid to get adventurous – remember this event is all about having fun! Formal attire is not encouraged. If you don’t want to dress in theme, that’s purr-fectly okay, you are welcome to come in slacks or a summer dress.

Get some ideas from our Woof 66 Pinterest board!
