Southampton - On Saturday afternoon, October 23, the Southampton Animal Shelter hosted their seasonal celebration, 'Barktoberfest.' The hundreds of loving animals looking for new homes were stars, and the shelter was swarming with families who came to take part in the celebration.

Girl Scouts Claire Beaver and Carly Kandler, who have been volunteering at the shelter in order to earn their Silver Project Badge, painted faces and created beautiful pine-cone bird feeders. The Good Humor ice cream truck was also in attendance, providing the crowd with the perfect treat for a sunny, warm, October afternoon. Assortments of festive bake sale goods were donated by volunteers and sold to benefit the shelter.

Little Lucy's Canine Boutique of Southampton sold a variety of doggie treats from their store at the event, donating partial proceeds to the shelter. "We love to promote adopt-a-dog," said Patricia Hurley, owner of Little Lucy's. On October 30 at 1 p.m. Little Lucy's will be hosting their annual Halloween Pet Parade, which benefits the Suffolk S.P.C.A.

Guests of the event roamed the halls of the shelter, and visited with the animals, and many were adopted. The kennel was loud; as the dogs howled with excitement from all the activity and attention they were receiving. If you would like to adopt an animal, or reach out and help the shelter in another way, contact Volunteer Coordinator Cathy Duemler at 631-728-7387.
