Go Hawaiian: It's The Bow Wow Luau

ALEXANDRIA,  Va. (WUSA) - Cue the "Hawaii 5-0" theme song and clear your calendar: canines and humans will be dressed for sunny success at Thursday's Bow Wow Luau.

The Hotel Monaco's Doggy Happy Hour will be transformed by the Canine Wingman Company into a Hawaiian-themed fundraiser on June 21 to help homeless cats and dogs at the Animal Welfare League of Alexandria.

Palm trees will sway in the background, along with hula dancers providing that island vibe for cool photo ops. (think ahead to your holiday cards: a dog in Hawaiian garb bests all those Santa-imitators!)

Dogs, in or out of costume, are encouraged to attend (cats prefer to leave the festivities to others), along with their humans (who may want to find that "Magnum, P.I."-era Hawaiian shirt.). Dozens are expected to be on hand competing for the awards for best Hawaiian costumes. 

The refreshments will include $2 beers and a special Hawaiian cocktail on sale exclusively for one night. You can also buy leis and sunglasses at the door in case yours are in summer storage, and yummy dog treats will be prepared and sold by Barkley Square
Gourmet Dog Bakery.  

The AWLA operates the Vola Lawson Animal shelter and has served as a community resource and shelter for homeless animals since 1946. For information on adopting a cat, dog or other pet, or for details on volunteering or donating, visit www.AlexandriaAnimals.org.
