SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — For the 13th year, Helping Hounds Dog Rescue (HHDR) hosted its annual Pumpkins & Pooches fall family fundraising event!

This year’s Pumpkins & Pooches was on Saturday, Oct. 14, from 11 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. at 7268 Caswell Street in North Syracuse.

The event was a fun-filled day that provided the local community with an opportunity to give back and maybe even match with a homeless dog in need.

There was a costume contest, raffles, vendors, food trucks, music, baked goods and more!

The costume contest had three prize-winning categories, including Top 3, Most Original, and Best Pair (Human & Dog).

There were also demonstrations throughout the day, including humane education, obedience training and more.

HHDR’s mission is to provide a compassionate approach to dog rescue by matching homeless dogs from overcrowded shelter systems with loving homes.
