Are you ready to Trick or Treat or have you had enough of Howl-O-Ween? Halloween has gone to the dogs in Chicago and there are still fun events for your pet to strut their costumed stuff before the witching hour. Then, check out some fun events this weekend to support animal rescue. So, grab your costumes for one last Part-ey and then toss out the Jack-O-Lanterns and check a few of these events out.
Wednesday, October 30
Time is running out before Halloween, but there are still some fun pet events for your pup to show of his best costume. Hit the West Loop tonight and tomorrow for some fun. Tonight hit Paw Naturals at 932 West Monroe for a Spooktacular Howl-O-Ween Bash from 6 to 9 p.m. Sign up for a photo setting for just $10 from the Fabulous Fetch Portraits. Goodie bags for the first 50 guests.
Halloween belongs to the black cat of course and it’s time to sing to help out homeless black (and other) cats in Chicago. Stop by The Closet at 3325 North Broadway in Chicago’s Lakeview neighborhood for some Scary-oke to benefit the cats at Tree House Humane Society. Belt out a tune or just enjoy the show from 8 to midnight.

And, if it’s Halloween beware of the Nightmare in Fulton Market from 6 to 10 p.m. at Chicago Party Animals at 1133 West Fulton Market. There will be a costume contest, Karaoke and so much more. The event is sold out, but if you haven’t signed up for a portrait of your spooky pet from Fetch Portraits there is still time to do so. Did you miss out in this party? Join the Chicago Dog Meet Up to stay up with all the great dog events at Chicago Party Animals.
