A taste of luxury for those most deserving


Howl-o-ween 2018 was a great success. We had 54 dogs attend with over 100 people at the venue. The sun was shining, the costumes were amazing and we raised over $1000 total for local charity Mutts and Moggies!
Looking forward to seeing everyone again next year!

Harry & Sam are proud to present Gisborne's first Halloween event for dogs:

Howl-o-ween is a family friendly, Halloween event for dogs, which will include a dog costume contest and parade for both dogs and their human family. A free photobooth and BBQ will complete the event. It is a fundraising event with the proceeds going towards supporting Gisborne Charity Mutts and Moggies. 

Mutts and Moggies is a non-profit organisation that helps animals within the Gisborne Community. Starting out with desexing cats they have expanded to include rehoming dogs. The proceeds from this event will go towards helping homeless dogs find their forever families. Mutts and Moggies are singular in that 100% of the proceeds will go directly to the animals for vet care, desexing and vaccinations.

Don't have a dog? Watch the costume contest and parade for free and enjoy A BBQ in support of Mutts and Moggies.

As this is a family friendly event, dogs must be both child and dog friendly.  Your dog MUST be leashed and under control at all times. Please ensure your dog is registered and up to date on all its vaccinations.


Dog Parade: Owner and dogs will walk around the Wine and Food section of the Showgrounds to show off the amazing costumes to the judges and crowd.
