This is the last weekend before Halloween, which means there are several fun trick-or-treat events to attend before the holiday.

Head to the Humane Society of Huron Valley in Ann Arbor Saturday for their 7th annual Muttster Mash Bash.

“We trick-or-treat through the whole shelter, including out in the back, through a dog walking path,” said event organizer Karen Patterson.

Children wear their costumes and get treats. They get a chance to make treats and toys for the animals looking for their forever homes.

“(Kids will) make some spider toys to pass out to the cats," Patterson said. "So it’s a neat way to have the kids make some cool crafts that are Halloween-themed, but also they get the experience of passing them out to the shelter animals.”

This year they are expecting 300 people to attend.

“Every year it’s growing,” Patterson said. 

The event is Saturday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and tickets are $10 for children, and parents are free.

They hope families will also take a look at the cats and dogs up for adoption and consider bringing one home.

There is an “adopt-one-kitten-get-one-free” special until Sunday.

“Being able to interact with them definitely helps with some adoptions,” Patterson added.
