Halloween 2015

Thank you to all who came to our Scary Tails Trick-or-Treat and haunted photo set!

Hundreds of our neighbors turned out at my Bloomfield store on Halloween day to Trick-or-Treat with their pets.  We hope you all went home with lots of dog and cat treats, as well as Halloween candy for you! We loved all of the very creative costumes – both pet and human!  Wow!

We also have lots of pictures to share with you –of the Trick-or-Treaters and also of pets and their people with Frankenstein at our haunted photo set. Everyone was so great about waiting for their turn  – we thank you and your pets for your patience!

For $5 our neighbors went home with a printed photo or for $10 they could get a flash drive of multiple pictures. We raised nearly $600! All donations went to Cat Tail Acres Sanctuary in Armada, Michigan. Cat Tail Acres provides a home to feral cats and cats that are unadoptable.  The organization is run by volunteers so every penny goes to buy food, cat litter, supplies and to pay for veterinary care. I am sure they will be thrilled with your contributions!

Awesome job everyone!  We hope you enjoy these pictures!

Live on WXYZ – Channel 7

I  had  a busy day on Halloween!  It started with a trip to WXYZ – Channel 7 for a news segment on our Scary Tails Trick-or-Treat and haunted photo set that we were holding later in the day at my Bloomfield Twp. store.

Here we are in the studio getting ready for our live segment. I have already been fitted with a microphone and now we are just being positioned in the studio in which the interview will take place.

I have been on TV a number of times now, but never get used to it!  My interview was with WXYZ anchor Nima Shaffe who was great!  In fact, everyone at WXYZ was great.  They make you feel so welcome.  Plus we met a lot of pet lovers!

The pets that went on TV are Purdy and Todd.  Purdy is a wonderful dog whose family shops at my store.  I am not sure how much Purdy liked the spider costume that we put her in – but she was very calm and seemed to like the attention. Thank you to Purdy’s Dad, Scott, for letting her go on TV!  Todd is an adorable little cat who didn’t seem to mind the pumpkin dress we put him in at all.  That says a lot about this little guy who is currently up for adoption in our Bloomfield Twp. Kitty City.

Pet Halloween costumes are a hit on Fox 2 Detroit

Our District Manager Sean O’Rourke and I were invited to go on Fox 2 Detroit to talk about what’s new this year in Halloween costumes for pets. See pictures of us preparing for our LIVE TV segment below with Gus (as Wonder Woman), Dino (as a Minion), Simba (in the stroller as a pumpkin in a haunted pumpkin patch) and Bambi (as a Lion).

Some of the questions they asked us:

What’s hot in pet costumes this year?

Movie and TV characters are popular again this year, along with the old-time traditional costumes like pumpkins and lions.

How much does the typical costume cost?

Expect to pay about $20 for a full costume; much less for accessories such as bandanas and hats.

What if my pet won’t go on a leash?

Consider using a stroller or pet carrier for your cat or small dog and making it part of the costume. See our haunted pumpkin patch stroller below!

What is the best place to take my pet Trick-or-Treating this year?

Pet Supplies Plus in Bloomfield Hills!  Pets in costume will be Trick-or-Treating for pet treats and food samples at multiple stations set up around the store. It all takes place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Halloween – Saturday, October 31! Also visit our haunted photo set and have you and your pet’s picture taken with Frankenstein! Click here for more info!
