Event FAQs

  • I'm going to do WoW with my family and our 1 dog, how many tickets do I need?
    Only one ticket is required per dog, regardless of how many humans they are accompanying. But, don't forget, that all of the money raised goes back to the Savannah rescue community. So while you may only need one, feel free to purchase more, or simply make a donation!
  • Do I/my pet have to dress up?
    Well, you don't have to, but what fun would that be?
  • I purchased a ticket, but now I'm unable to attend. Can I get a refund?
    While tickets are nonrefundable donations, they can be transferred to an adoptable dog. Please email to if you wish to transfer your tickets.
  • Can I participate on both days?
    Absolutely! As long as you have your wristband you can continue gathering treats on both days! You can hit it all in one day, or do one day downtown and another day in the Starland area. Whatever works for is great. Just have fun!
  • Can I donate a ticket so that a foster dog can attend?
    Yes! On our ticket page there is an option to purchase a ticket for a volunteer to take an adoptable dog out trick or treating! Entries will be distributed prior to the event. You do not have to be able to attend the event to gift this opportunity!
  • Who can participate in the Weiner Races?
    This race is open to all breeds but will be broken into Wiener dogs/mixes and non-wieners. 6 dogs will race at a time and the fastest of those runs will be invited back at 4pm for the daily finalist races! Sign up for your time slot on-site at Pulaski Square.

    Wag-O-Ween takes place all over Historic Downtown Savannah and in Savannah's Starland District.
  • How does Wag-O-Ween work?
    You'll need to purchase a ticket for each participating dog. Tickets can be purchased the weekend of the event, but you are encouraged to pre-purchase them online and pick them up at one of our pick up events in the days leading up to Wag-O-Ween weekend. With each ticket you'll receive a goody bag, an event map, a scavenger hunt card and a wristband. Then you simply follow the map to the participating treat stops in the Downtown and Starland Districts of Savannah, where you and your pup can go trick-or-treating! Costumes highly encouraged!

    Tickets are $12/dog. Included with each ticket is an event goody bag, event map, scavenger hunt card and an event wristband that lets treat stop businesses know that you have paid to play.
  • If I just want my booth for one day, does it cost less?
    No. When you reserve a booth space, you reserve it for the weekend. If you are unable to participate both days, consider the second day a donation back to the community.
  • Do I have to be present both days for a Booth Space?
    While you do not have to be present both days, it is still highly encouraged. Generally we see a completely different set of participants on each day, and you don't want to miss out on any fun!
  • Where and when do I pick up my goody bag(s) and t-shirt(s)?
