“The Whole Enchihuahua” is somehow my least-favorite and most-favorite name for a dog-costume contest. But the annual contest in San Francisco, sponsored in part by the SF SPCA, means well, for sure:
This yearly event, presented by 7×7 and the SF SPCA, is a super fun way to help raise awareness for the plight of the mighty Chihuahua. They’re the breed most in need of rescue – Chihuahuas and Chihuahua mixes are overrepresented in most shelters in Northern California. The Whole Enchihuahua is the capper on a three month-long campaign to find these little guys new, loving homes with free adoptions and help prevent the overpopulation with free spay/neuter at the SF SPCA. Chihuahuas are waiting for your help, healing, and hugs.
The chihuahuas-in-California bit isn’t just a tug at the heartstrings. We do see it all over the state and the Bay Area.
Head to the contest on May 18 (a week from Saturday) if you’re around!
