HOWL-O-WEEN at The Adoptable Puppy Cafe

What does a Halloween party and an adoptable puppy café have in common? They’re both a treat! This free-entry event combines our adorable furry friends with the spooky spirit. Come play with these lovable pups and while you're at it, grab a couple of Halloween-infused treats, including Cauldron of Coffee, Creepy Cupcakes, and more. If your hands are tied, there is no pressure to adopt—but this is the perfect opportunity to learn about fostering, or volunteering for, homeless dogs. You are free to doll up in costumes (best dressed wins the prize once again)—just make sure not to wear a full-face mask as it can scare away some pups.
