Howl-O-Ween Hounds

Give an animal the treat of a forever home this Halloween! Grossmont Center and the San Diego Animal Support Foundation are excited to host the annual Howl-O-Ween Hounds MEGA Adoption Event from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, October 12, at the Center.

Find the Pet of Your Dreams

During the free Howl-O-Ween Hounds event, dozens of rescue groups and shelters bring hundreds of dogs, puppies, cats, kittens, birds, turtles, and tortoises to the Center—and all of them are ready to be adopted into a loving home! You can find many different kinds of dog breeds at this mega adoption event, everything from the tiniest Chihuahuas to the grandest Great Pyrenees, as well as unique and adorable All-American “mutts.” This family-friendly event is the perfect way for every member of your household to choose a new pet together.

The San Diego Animal Support Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit organization whose primary mission is to increase pet adoptions from reputable shelters and rescue agencies in its network. The foundation organizes these annual mega-events to promote adoptions by bringing potential adopters and lots of animals together in one happy, stress-free environment to facilitate the matchmaking process! The participating adoption agencies are given free booth space, and admission is free to the public.

For more information, contact the San Diego Animal Support Foundation at Info@SDShelters.orgsdshelters.org or (619) 847-8755.
