INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis Animal Care Services is celebrating the season with adoption events that they hope will make people "fall in love" with a shelter pet.
IACS is hosting Pup-kin Patch adoption events on several days during the month of October. Adoptions are free and there is no appointment necessary.
The shelter said it had "great success" with these events last year, adopting out dozens of animals each time. The leaves and temperature may be changing, but IACS hopes the success rate of this festive fall event remains the same, as the shelter starts to fill up once again with animals in need.
The Pup-kin Patch adoption events will be held Oct. 13, 16, 17, and 27 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
During the event, individuals hoping to adopt can visit dogs on the outdoor dog runs and cat adoptions will take place inside the shelter.
IACS said masks or face coverings are encouraged if going inside the shelter.
IACS will also be hosting a free Trunk or Treat event on Oct. 30 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. IACS will have two of its animal care trucks decorated, there will be a photo booth and adoptable animals will be viewable until 6 p.m.
