Costumes and candy won’t show up the adorable adoptable dogs at the Franklin County Dog Shelter, but it will make for a fun Trick-or-Treat with the Pups for the kids on Saturday, October 21, 2023 from 10 am – noon.
Don your favorite costumes and bring the kids visit the shelter for an afternoon full trick-or-treating with our adorable and adoptable dogs! Star Wars Fan are in luck! The 501st Legion will be there!
Note: Please leave your own pets at home – for the comfort and safety of all, the only dogs in attendance will be adoptable dogs at the shelter.
Trick-or-Treat with the Pups
Treat stations for the kids are located throughout the shelter, along with crafts, games, holiday activities, as well as meet and greet and photo opportunities with The 501st Legion characters.
There’s also a REVERSE Trick-or-Treat, where guests can give dog treats to the adoptable dogs and they walk through the shelter.
Costumes are encouraged, but face masks can be scary for the dogs. Please plan to remove masks in the kennel areas. (I would add that props that look like weapons should also be left – no one knows what these dogs have experienced).
Donations of soft and chewy treats are always appreciated (and very much loved by our dogs), and will be accepted during this event.
While you’re there, maybe you’ll find a perfect pup to take home, like we did!
