The Oklahoma City Animal Shelter will hold a series of dog-themed adoption events every weekend in October with hopes to adopt out a record 700 dogs and cats by the end of the month.

The shelter has dubbed the promotion “Dogtober.”

Adoption fees will be reduced to $30 for dogs and puppies during the month. Animals have been spayed or neutered, have received their age-appropriate vaccinations, have been wormed and have been treated for fleas and ticks.

“What better way to celebrate fall than to fall in love with a beautiful shelter dog or puppy during Dogtober,” shelter Superintendent Catherine English said.

Free pet ID tags are available at the shelter.

“Fall in Love” will be from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday at the McDonald's at Northwest Expressway and Council. Adopters will get a free meal and a goody bag.

“Open Minds, Open Hearts” will be from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 13 at PetSmart at Interstate 40 and MacArthur. Participants will learn about breed myths and breed identity. There will be a free goody bag for adopters.
