TeaCups & Pets Are People Too's 1st annual Halloween Pet Costume Party will benefit "Glimmer of Life," a non-profit organization dedicated to caring for sickly dogs in desperate need of surgery in order to survive, of which would otherwise be euthanized.

For a $10 sitting fee, which will be donated to "Glimmer of Life" small dog rescue, you can have your pet's holiday portrait taken by an award-winning, professional pet photographer! Packages start at just $40 plus shipping. Event will take place Friday and Saturday, October 30th and 31st from 10am to 6pm.

Adopt before you shop! We understand that most people would prefer a cute little puppy, but we also know that you can find the same qualities and companionship in an older or special needs dog that you can in a puppy. Please consider adoption before you shop. There are thousands of lonely and hungry pets out there in desperate need of a loving home. We will be hosting a Pet Adoption Event on Friday and Saturday, October 30th and 31st from 10am to 6pm. So if you're looking for an addition to your family, please pay a visit and you just might fall in love. There will be a small adoption fee that goes to "Glimmer of Life" to help pay for the cost of spaying/neutering and any other health care that may have been required at the time of rescue.

So come join us, and have a HAPPY HOWL-O-WEEN!!!
