What a fabulous way to celebrate pet-lovers and pet-adoption! Bazaar del Mundo recently hosted Helen Woodward Animal Center’s annual Blue Buffalo “Home 4 the Holidays” event, which celebrates HWAC’s global efforts to find forever homes for more than 1 million orphan pets each year.

Our celebration event included photo ops with “Santa Paws,” festive holiday treats, opportunity drawings, adoptable puppies, a huge selection of pet-themed merchandise, and a canine costume contest with pups dressed in their holiday best.

It was a great opportunity for people to find unique holiday gifts for the pet lovers in their lives, while also helping to raise funds for an amazing cause, as portions of our sales that day were donated back to Helen Woodward.

The big winners of the costume contest? First Place went to Sir Ruffles von Vicious as a Christmas Tree (with lots of bark), Snowman Bailey came in Second, and Happy Hanukkah Ruby in Third! It was “paws-itively” adorable!
