The event is a fundraiser for the Pacific Animal Therapy Society, a Victoria-based group that sends volunteers and their dogs to local hospitals, schools and nursing homes to provide comfort and stress relief.

Howl’oween Pet Picture Event to support the Pacific Animal Therapy Society is Sunday, Oct. 28 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Broadmead Village. Halloween pet pictures are by $15 donation.

Broadmead Village also hosts its seventh annual Haunted Broadmead Village on Wednesday, Oct. from 3 to 5:30 p.m.

Trick-or-treaters can visit stores identified by a Haunted Broadmead Village poster in the store window. Many of the stores owners and employees will be dressed up to celebrate the occasion.
