STRUT YOUR MUTT - Deck your pet out in its best Halloween attire and head for Longmont Humane Society's Strut Your Mutt Pet Friendly Festival on Saturday, Oct. 26 at the Boulder County Fairgrounds from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The event will feature pet contests, demonstrations, pet-related vendors and refreshments. Rogers Grove and the St. Vrain Greenway sustained a great deal of flooding damage and as a result the shelter's walk/fun run won't be held this year. The event will be free to attend. People who raised money for pledges will still be able to donate and pick up their t-shirts.
FEASTING FOR FELINES - On Wednesday, Oct. 23, have dinner at Bruno's Italian Bistro, 2223 South Monaco Parkway in Denver, between 4 and 10 p.m. and Bruno's will donate 20 percent of sales to the Cat Care Society in Lakewood. You must print and present a flyer that can be found on the society's website under the events category. For more information, visit www.MyBrunos.com.
