Get ready, it’s almost time for the annual Howl-O-Ween Family Fest at Marty’s Place Senior Dog Sanctuary. This fun-filled event is open to the public and anyone can come with children of all ages and dogs of all sizes. There promises to be something for everyone from 11 am – 4 pm.
One of the most unique activities of the day is the Ruff Mudder Canine Obstacle Course. Last year more than 50 dogs and their families participated on the 1⁄2 mile course, which featured spooky friends hiding out amongst the rope, tunnel, jump bar, walking trail, see-saw and hay mountain challenges! Dogs of all skill levels are welcome to participate with their owners.
Would your dog love to dress up for Howl-O-Ween? Why not enter them into the Marty’s Place costume con- test? Imaginewhatablasttowatchyourdogcompeteincostumeortoparticipateinselectingthebestcostume winners. And if that’s not enough, how fun does a family and dog friendly hayride sound?
There will be many more activities including photo booths, face painting, raffles, food, vendors and music by Buntopia. So, plan to spend the day out on the grounds of Marty’s Place at 118 Route 526 in Upper Freehold. A fun time is guaranteed for all, even if you come to the Howl-O-Ween Family Fest at Marty’s Place without a dog!
At Marty’s Place we all come together as one family and do what we do because we share the passion that se- nior dogs’ lives matter. More information about Marty’s Place and the Howl-O-Ween event can be found at, or
