Just a little tidbit about what's going on at the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation over the next couple of weeks: October 20th, the SUBARU, dealership,(known for their animal friendliness!!), in Riverhead will host an adopt-a-thon for the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation, to be followed by another Riverhead business leader, Agway, on Saturday October 27th, who will do the same. HOWL-o-Ween will be celebrated this year, as ME-owl-o-Ween, at the shelter on Sunday, October 28th and will feature face painting, costume contests for YOU AND YOUR DOG, an agility demonstration at 2:00 p.m. and, OF COURSE, an all day ADOPT-O-WEEN so that our beautiful dogs, cats, puppies and kittens can find their forever home, Deborah & Paul Laube, (former owners of the Country Market on Noyac Road), will donate their over-the-top yummy, delicious cupcakes, cookies and assorted breads, (pumpkin, apple, zucchini, etc!) to the shelter for the bake sale. (sorry! their recipes are all old family secrets!!) Bring the entire family!
