Prescott goes to the dogs

Give October to the dogs at the 2019 Dogtoberfest & Adopt-a-Thon, held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 6 at Watson Lake Park.

All animals are last-chance dogs or puppies, rescued from all sorts of situations and Pets Return Home works with every dog to overcome behavior and medical issues by giving them a safe place where they are socializing with a pack of other dogs, getting the proper exercise from hiking, swimming or playing and getting love from volunteers. Dogtoberfest includes games, contest and fun activities for the whole family.
