The 11th Annual Saga Humane Society Spooktacular Halloween Party has been set for Sunday October 26, 2014 from 11a.m. to 5p.m at Carlo & Ernie's Runway Bar. It is expected to be the largest Saga Halloween Party in history.

New for 2014, is celebrity judged contests (Best Costume, Best Kisser, Owner/Pet Look-A-Like, Best Trick, and more), fun activities and games for pets and kids, raffles, auction items and so much more. Saga is pleased to also include this year a Smooch-A-Pooch kissing booth that is sure to delight young and old.

The goal at Saga Humane Society and the goal of this, the largest fundraiser of the year, is to raise awareness about the benefits of spay and neuter, and that being kind is not a way of thinking but a way of living. Saga hopes to also raise awareness to the many dogs that are for adoption through Ft. Dog and the shelter.

Superstar Josh Nunez to headline saga humane society Halloween Spooktacular
Telenovela star and San Pedro native Josh Nunez will headline the 11th annual SAGA Humane Society Halloween Spooktacular Party on Sunday October 26, 2014 from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm. at Carlo & Ernie’s Runway Bar & Grill. The Telenovela star, and animal lover will join San Pedro Police Chief Jemmott and Miss San Pedro Michelle Estrella Nunez as a contest celebrity judge at this year’s event.

The Spooktacular family fun party, SAGA’s largest annual fundraiser, features ghoulish games, family fun, contests for pets and owners, live auction items, raffles, great food and drink and more. This years pet costume contest is rumored to be the largest ever with over 100 owners and pets dressed in their most frightful costumes, hoping to be crowned Most Spooktacular, and of course to get a glimpse of star Josh Nunez. New at the 2014 Spooktacular party is the SAGA Canine Kissing booth. Instead of having your standard kissing booth operated by young, beautiful people handing out smooches for charity, this canine kissing booth offers kisses a bit more slobbery that you’d expect.

SAGA Animal Well Being Director Kathy Marin says, “It’s Hip To Snip” and hopes the kissing booth brings in the smackers, the lajan, AKA moolah in support of SAGA’s SNIP campaign. The Spay Neuter Initiative Program (SNIP) launched in 2013 aims to humanely reduce animal overpopulation on Ambergris Caye, by reducing unwanted litters of puppies and kittens. In 2013 alone, 639 spay neuter surgeries were performed and Marin wants that number to double in 2015.

All proceeds from the event will directly benefit the shelter. Silent auction items, including resort packages, massage and dining certificates, and more will be available for bidding on line beginning Wednesday October 15th and will remain open until Monday October 27th.

Top-rated excursions, luxury resort accommodations, dining and boutique shopping certificates headline the 11th annual Saga Spooktacular Halloween on-line auction - The San Pedro community businesses and resort managers and owners, have generously donated award winning dining certificates, exclusive resort and condo accommodations, adventure excursions and activities, boutique shopping certificates and more, in support of the 11th Annual Saga Humane Society Halloween Fundraiser. This year, many of those items can be won on-line at

On Sunday October 26th from 11 AM to 5 PM, Saga friends and supporters will gather at Carlo and Ernie’s Runway Bar & Grill on Coconut Drive in San Pedro to celebrate Halloween “Saga Style” with games, activities, food and drink and the ever popular Saga Halloween Costume Contest, awarding great prizes. “Everyone in San Pedro looks forward to the Saga Halloween party each year,” says Saga board member and Animal Well Being Director Kathy Marin. But not to worry, she says. “If you can’t come to the party, you can still grab some great prizes on-line at auction site with all the proceeds going directly to SAGA.

“This fun-filled party is only one part of the annual Saga fundraiser,” according to Eileen Jamison, one of the original founders of Saga and owner of island favorite DandE’s Frozen Custard.

“The games and contests and food are great. The raffle prizes are fantastic, and this year’s Smooch-A-Pooch booth is sure to be a favorite. For those Saga friends and supporters who cannot be at the party this year, we have taken the best of the best items like free airfare on Tropic Air, luxury accommodations at award-winning properties like X'tan Ha Resort, and adventure activities and put them onto an interactive on-line auction system. Now Saga friends near and far can join the fun.”

The Spooktacular party on the 26th will include lots of games and contests for pets and kids of all ages. There will be facepainting, paw and palm readings, celebrity judged contests for you and your pet and the Smooch-A-Pooch canine kissing booth. All this, plus great food, drink and raffle prizes make the Saga party the place to be this Halloween. The kids love all the games and activities just for them, and everyone really enjoys the costume contest. One family even dressed their pet turtles in tutus. “Now that was creative,” says Marin, “I can’t wait to see this year’s costumes and who will be crowned best-of-show”.

The auction opens on Tuesday, October 21st and will close at midnight on November 15, 2014. Bidders are encouraged to check items often. “There are great items on this year’s auction. I’ll be bidding on the sunset cruise for six donated by Searious Adventures, and I’ll be checking it up until the last minute. I’m not going to let that one slip away,” says Saga Humane Education coordinator Sandie Betz-Eisenberg.

Saga Humane Society was founded in 1999 as the first and only non-profit animal shelter and clinic in Belize, whose mission is to promote kindness and prevent cruelty to all animals.

Saga Humane Society Rocks Halloween in San Pedro
Now in its 11th year, Saga Humane Society’s Halloween Spooktacular event shows no sign of slowing down. The fundraiser party keeps getting bigger and better with a record number of attendants at this year’s event that took place at Carlo and Ernie’s Runway Bar and Grill on Sunday, October 26, 2014. Pet owners, mostly of the canine kind, gathered in packs all dressed up in funny and spooky costumes along with their beloved pet dogs. It has always been a big family affair, with lots of young participants showing off their pets, even with matching costumes. There was food, music, candy, a silent auction and prizes for the best costumes. The event was a big success and very well attended; islanders to like to pamper their pets. Here are some of our favorite costumes/moments of the event.

The San Pedro, Belize SAGA Humane Society’s 11th Halloween Spooktacular Is the Biggest Yet!
Yesterday afternoon the entire town turned out for the SAGA Humane Society‘s BIG Halloween Fundraiser Costume party at Carlo & Ernie’s Runway Bar. The spot was JAM PACKED. Kids, adults, tons of dogs… …games, raffles, a smooching pooch booth…drinks, food. It was a roaring success. I took a ton of pictures and Mike, a SanPedroScoop reader who just came down with his wife to adopt a puppy that they met at the Bacalar Chico ranger station, took even more. Beautiful close-ups of kids, pets and volunteers.
