Costumed canines are on the agenda for Much Love Animal Rescue's Bow Wow Ween, an annual fund-raiser benefiting the volunteer-run organization that helps find homes for stray animals and neglected pets. Admission includes "family-friendly" activities like the Canine Costume Contest, wherein dog lovers compete for thousands of dollars in prizes by dressing up their pooches as ballerinas, cowboys, slutty nurses, what have you. The contest is judged by as-yet-unannounced B-list celebrities, so expect your Jerry O'Connells and Tori Spellings on scene. Oh, and you can adopt a dog, too.
