This year's event will feature a virtual costume contest, in-person costume contest and pet parade, activities for kids, an opportunity to make treats for your pets at the in-person event, t-shirt fundraiser, and an opportunity to purchase a DIY pet enrichment kit so your dog or cat can join in on the fun! All proceeds raised at the Howl-o-Walkoween help fun Humane Education programs like summer camps, reading program, Animal Care Teens, Fallin' For Pets camps, spring break camps, and Kind News subscriptions for more than 100 classrooms in and around Fort Wayne. Visit the event's main page to learn more about all the upcoming events.

 COVID protocol: We will be closely monitoring the situation in our community as we near the start of the Howl-o-Walkoween. If necessary, for the safety of participants and staff we may decide to make the event 100% virutal. We will continue to work with local health officials to make the best decision.
