**Adoptions are on a first come, first served basis. At 9 am, registration begins. The first number will be given out to the first person/family in line, the second number for the second person/family in line, etc. After receiving your number, you do not have to stay, but should plan to be back at least 15 minutes before adoptions begin. However, with the training demonstrations, contests and crafts, we encourage adopters and their families to stick around to enjoy the fun!

This is the last of our Drop In Pack Walks for the season, and we’re celebrating with howl-ween bash! Pack Walk admission fee is $20, or FREE if you come in costume (you or your dog – or both!). We’ll have canine agility and tricks training in the classroom. Then, weather permitting, a group pack walk on the trails. This is NOT a haunted walk.

Kids of all ages are welcome to trick or treat with the pets at AWS. We’ll have lessons on Halloween pet safety and make special dog treats. Kids will have a chance to trick or treat and deliver the freshly made treats to the pets. Costumes are encouraged as we will parade from the Boston House Humane Ed classroom to the AWS Adoption Center. Please leave your pet at home.
