(October 31) MUTTS MASQUERADE
The hounds of horror will be out in full force for a Halloween hike through Rock Creek Park. The Mutts Masquerade is a benefit party for the Washington Animal Rescue League kicking off Halloween morning at 8 in Meadowbrook Park. The two- and four-footed will be dressed in their finest costumes for doggie trick-or-treating and a canine costume contest. The League will also have vets on hand to do pet check-ups and insert tracking microchips, in case your own hound of horror goes astray.

The League's Annual Open House takes place after the Halloween festivities on Sunday, November 1st from noon to 4pm at its headquarters on Oglethorpe Street. There will be a "haunted" Medical Center, red-tag adoption specials and refreshments, along with a community yard sale, music and family-friendly activities.
