Stop by BARC this weekend to find the perfect new furry family member and have a little bit of festive fun with games, activities, pumpkin painting and more. Hundreds of puppies, dogs, cats and kittens in all shapes and sizes will be available for adoption. On Saturday, October 26, BARC will have a pet costume contest at 3 p.m. and pumpkin painting starting at 1 p.m.

Do you think your dog could be certified as an American Kennel Club (AKC) Canine Good Citizen? Get your pet tested for free at BARC on Saturday, October 26 from 3:30 p.m to 4:30 p.m.

BARC will also hold basic obedience classes from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday if weather permits. An instructor will be available to answer questions about doggy obedience after the class. Class participants will be invited to take advantage of the volunteer grooming services before or after their class.

Thanks to Demi's Dog House for helping to make this event possible.

BARC adoptions include spay/neuter surgery, a one-year City license, a pre-registered microchip with lifetime registration and age-appropriate vaccinations. Visit to get more information about BARC's adoption fees and requirements.
