Paws4You rescue hosts their 13th annual Howl-o-ween festival (includes video story)

This past Saturday, Howl-o-ween, an event organized by Paws4You Rescue, took place in Pinecrest Garden. 

It was an opportunity for many pup-loving families to come out and participate in the thirteenth annual Howl-o-ween festival while raising funds for Paws4You Rescue and dog adoption. The funds are used to maintain the Paws4You facility in Kendall and provide medical care to the animals in need. 

“We have been doing this event for thirteen years,” said Carol Caridad, president of Paws4You Rescue. “We are very grateful for our partnership with Pinecrest Gardens. We keep growing it every year. This year we had the most vendors ever. I think we are at 27 vendors.”

The fun activities during the event involve trick and treating, a costume contest, a doggie fun zone agility course, food, drinks, live entertainment, a spooky kids zone and a pumpkin patch.
