Traveling Art Installation Heading to Phoenix and Benefiting Homeless Pets

Posted By on October 16, 2019

The Arizona Humane Society has teamed up with Downtown Phoenix for their Howl-o-ween event featuring The Big Dog Show. For the first time ever, The Big Dog Show, a traveling art installation raising funds for pets in-need around the country, will be making its debut in Phoenix at Hance Park. The Big Dog Show features 20 eight-foot dog sculptures that groups can sponsor, in support of the Arizona Humane Society, and decorate with their own special flair. Decorating will take place on Friday, October 25 and Saturday, October 26 and will then be on display for the public beginning on Sunday, October 27 at the Howl-o-ween event and throughout the month of November.  

Howl-o-ween featuring the Big Dog Show is a free event that takes place on Sunday, October 27 from 12-4 p.m. on the west side of Hance Park and includes pooches on parade ($25 per dog to march in the parade), food trucks, giant dog sculptures and lots of family fun in the park with AHS and Downtown Phoenix Inc.

Dale Rogers has been working as a full time metal sculptor since 2002. Dale’s strong beliefs regarding the positive impact that art has on everyone has led him to design large scale temporary exhibits for the public that can tour around the country.

Dale and his Big Dog show have helped raise over $500,000 for various humane societies and shelters.
