“This will be the first time we have hosted the Howl-o-ween Festival at our new location. We are expanding on everything – activities, vendors and prizes!  Howl-o-ween has always been a family favorite for our communities and we are working hard to makes this one the best yet. This is also a great opportunity to visit our new shelter and to learn more about our rescue,” said Partners for Pets founder, Lisa McCormick. “Since 2002, we have saved over 12,000 animals from euthanasia. All tax deductible donations raised from this wonderful event will continue to serve animals in need.”

Proceeds from the event will benefit homeless dogs and cats from the Metro-East and St. Louis area. For more information about the event or about Partners for Pets, visit them online at, or find them on Facebook
