October is Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month and here is the perfect event to find your new furry friend

Don’t miss the upcoming Barktoberfest adoption event. Meet hundreds of great dogs and puppies from across Washington in one location. Come meet the dogs Sunday, October 11th, noon until 3 pm at the Academy of Canine Behavior in Bothell, Wash. Last year, over 80 families found their new best friends at Barktoberfest!

The Academy of Canine Behavior is located at 4705 240th St. SE, Bothell, WA 98021. Directions can be found at

Why should you adopt at this event?

More than 100 dogs and puppies of all different shapes, sizes, ages and breeds from nine animal rescue organizations will be onsite available for adoption. Puppies, adults, small dogs, purebred and mixed breeds will be available. No need to buy a dog from a breeder and then have to pay for shots and spay/neuter--with these dogs all of that has been done and is included in the adoption price. The only thing these dogs need is a new home to love and protect them for a lifetime.

Experienced shelter staff, volunteers and trainers will be on hand to help you find the right animal for your family. The trainers will be available to answer your questions about any dog you are thinking of adopting. Shelter staff has evaluated each dog’s behavior and temperament. Adoption fees range from $150.00 to $250.00.
