Pet and Animal Events for October 18th – 25th


Remember, October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month!

This week’s featured adoptable dog is 7-month old Kona, an Australian Cattle Dog mix at the Larimer Humane Society. If adopting her is not in the cards for you, you can still sponsor her care at the shelter, or any other animals awaiting homes. Just think about it!

Here are the local events on tap for the next week. Keep an eye the Tails twitter account at @tailoffortcollins for new events added during the week.
