The Lucas County Dog Warden’s office will hold a “Howlaween” Adopt-a-thon this Saturday Oct. 23 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 410 S. Erie Street.

All dogs adopted that day will receive a free post-adoption veterinary exam at a local veterinary clinic and a free collar and leash. Adopters will also get to spin the “Howlowheel” to receive an additional adoption incentive including free grooming, training, dog food, and more!

“Currently, we have over 35 dogs in need of adoption, ranging from a Dachshund to a Bullmastiff mix,” said Julie Lyle, Lucas County Dog Warden. “Anyone who is looking for a great companion should come down this Saturday and give one of these great dogs a home.”

In addition to all the above extras, the Dog Warden’s $50 adoption fee includes the spay/neuter surgery, initial vaccines (distemper/parvo and bordetella), worming, microchip and registration, exam, and behavioral evaluation. There is an additional $25 fee to license the dog, which must be done at the time of adoption.

There will also be trick or treating for both costumed children and dogs at the event!

Representatives from Humane Ohio will be in attendance collecting food for their Pet Food Bank. Anyone who brings a pet food item to donate will be entered into a drawing for a prize basket.

Sponsors of the event include Overmeyer Veterinary Center, Hancock Fabrics, Poco’s Playhouse, St. Francis Veterinary Hospital, Andersons, Ball Media, Petco, Appliance Center, Little Caesars (Byrne), Bigby Coffee, Gardner Dog Training, Silly Bandz, Toledo Free Press, K100 and Kroger.
