Patrons are invited to bring two-and four-legged friends for a screening of the beloved 2000 classic, “Best in Show.” Doggie Date Night will include food and beverages available for purchase, with food trucks from Good Dogs, Mattia Pizza and more, and craft beer available from Discretion Brewery.
The movie “Best in Show” was nominated for a 2001 Golden Globe award for Best Motion Picture — Comedy or Musical. Directed by Christopher Guest, the mockumentary chronicles a Philadelphia dog show through a savagely funny and satirical eye, and is now recognized as a favorite of the genre.
Doggie Date Night will be held at Anna Jean Cummings Park, 461 Old San Jose Rd., Soquel. Festivities begin at 6 p.m., with the movie starting at 8:00 p.m. There is no cost for admission.
Well-behaved dogs on leashes welcome. Bring a blanket, low back chairs and seasonal clothing. For more information please visit www.scanimalshelter.org. “Best in Show” is rated PG-13: parental guidance is cautioned, as some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
The Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter is an open admission shelter, which welcomes EVERY animal in need. Our goal is to be a humane resource for the community by providing a safety net and second chance for local animals.
There are two locations where owners can find and recover lost pets, adopt new animal companions, or sign up for PLANNED PetHood, our low cost spay/neuter program available for all resident pets.
Our success is achieved through a variety of life-saving services and programs which are described in detail on our website, www.scanimalshelter.org.
The support of our community is crucial to sustaining and expanding these services.
