“BAD BARNEY “ formally of the “Lazy Labrador Gang” has reorganized and formed the “Barker Gang” with his K-9 pals, MAW BARKER aka  “Freckles”, MAD MATT, and new prospects, MARCI and Mr. T.  Those naughty K-9’s terrorize the neighborhoods rumbling for fire hydrants and looking for participants to enter in the Lion’s Club  Annual Pumpkin ‘ Chuckin’ Halloween Pet Costume Contest on Saturday, October 15. Last years event sported 30 K-9’s , strutting their stuff from a “hot dog” to a “princess”.  Please join us and put the thrill back into your pet when he or she has to put on a costume.  There will be a donation fee of $6.00 , which a portion of that money will go towards the transportation costs,  when the Ely City Animal Control,  relocates hard to adopt animals to other shelters.  Sign ups will be at the County Park at 11am with the Costume Contest starting at noon.  Please bring a little story about your pet.  Bad Barney and the Gang will be there. For more information please contact,  Mayor Van Camp at 775-296-152410-7-pet-constest
