It’s all about Barktoberfest at the San Diego Humane Society. Not only is this month the National Adopt-a-Shelter Dog Month (only a $10.00 adoption fee per dog!) but it’s also a month filled with activities.

The next one is just around the corner; this Thursday, October 17th, from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm, SD Humane Society is holding a Pets with Allergies Lecture at Central Campus (Gaines Street.)

A Blessing of the Animals, and a Halloween Dog Event are also just around the corner – for a full list of their activities, please visit SD Humane Society’s website.
