On Wednesday, May 2, 2012, Morris Animal Inn will be celebrating it’s fourth annual doggie prom event! While no limos, date swapping, or drama will be involved, big hair, cute outfits and lots of dancing are encouraged! Dapper dogs – with or without dates – are all invited to our retro, 50’s themed prom, “Bark Around the Clock!”  So put a quarter into the jukebox and get ready to jive!

Last year we went pink, this year, we are delving into the past, back to a world of doo wop, early rock and roll, saddle shoes and drive-in movie theaters! Sign your pooch up for our prom party and witness the inn transformed for this special doggie event! For your dog, highlights of the day will include:

-Music and dancing to some of the greatest rock and roll hits
-Prom photos at the American Barkstand
-“Ain’t Nothing but a Hound Dog” dash
-Barking and rolling on the pooch playground
-“Splish splash” dunks in our indoor aqua center

As per tradition, we are teaming up with a charity organization and this year we are happy to partner with SAGE Community Outreach, located in Summit NJ. SAGE is concerned with the health, happiness, and general well-being of older citizens and their families. SAGE operates New Jersey’s oldest Meals on Wheels program and Adult Day Care Service. The SAGE Resale Shop supports their efforts by providing funds for SAGE’s programs and services. We are collecting gently used prom attire and accessories to be sold at the SAGE Resale shop at a lower cost for those less fortunate. Any dog and family who donates formal wear will receive a $25 gift certificate for lodging, grooming or daycare at Morris Animal Inn. We will be accepting donations until May 2. A special thank you goes out to all of those who have already donated prom attire and/or accessories!
