There will be educational presentations every half hour, a shopping area featuring animal-related products, rescue groups with animals to adopt, a pet portrait photographer and professionals to answer questions. On-site micro-chipping will be available for $25 per dog.
Delgado Veterinary Technology students will offer "pawticures," ear cleaning and baths at the Delgado Doggie Day Spa. Events include a 1 mile walk at 2 p.m., and a K9 Halloween costume contest with prizes at 3 p.m. The contest entry fee is $5 per dog. — Kandace Power Graves
