City of Casselberry Press Release with additional information
Mark your calendar for the 2019 Casselberry Howl-O-Ween Dog Walk-a-Thon and Canine Costume Contest being held on Saturday, October 26, 2019, from 9am to 12pm, at Secret Lake Park. Rain or shine this event goes on.
This event is only a short drive from Orlando. There are many routes to take to arrive at this event. Please check your GPS for the best travel route. There is limited parking at Secret Lake Park. However, there is plenty of street parking available. All parking is first come, first serve. It is recommended to arrive early. The event address is 95 Triple Lake Drive, Casselberry, Florida 32707.
There will be a leisurely dog walk, doggie costume contest, adoptable dogs, raffles, music, pet-friendly vendors, and much more! “What could possibly be more fun than candy, costumes, and special treats?” exclaimed Jana Caswell, Franklin’s Friends Board Member. “That’s easy…just add dogs! HOWL-O-WEEN is such a great event and does so much to raise funds and awareness for Franklin’s Friends. The morning of well-organized canine chaos brings animal lovers together to support a cause that goes well beyond a half mile walk.”
All proceeds benefit Franklin’s Friends, an all volunteer 501(c)(3) non profit organization whose mission is to support Central Florida animal welfare by fundraising for local nonprofit and government agencies that are dedicated to Shelter/Rescue, Spay/Neuter, or Community Education projects. “HOWL-O-WEEN” and the spring gala “Unleashed. Uncorked. Unframed.” are the two signature events that raise funds for the organization.
Founded in 2003 by two UCF graduates – Dr. Monisha Seth and Dr. Anthony Douglas – in honor of their rescued hound Franklin, Franklin’s Friends has raised over $1.2 million for local animal welfare.
