Huntsville humane society holds festival to raise shelter funds

There were plenty of Halloween festivities going on in the Tennessee Valley this weekend, but one in particular focused on our four-legged friends.

The Greater Huntsville Humane Society held its "Happy Paws Fall Festival" Saturday. Some of the animals even got into the Halloween spirit early and came in costume. The event encouraged people to adopt needy animals and also raised money for the shelter. Workers say they're facing some very difficult times right now and every little bit helps.

"We're totally non-profit and we rely on donations, so this is huge for us because the animals rely on us. This is a no-kill facility here. So this is huge," said Warren Candler, executive director of the GHHS.

The shelter needs pet food of all types, peanut butter and litter. The group is also trying to raise money to buy space heaters for the puppy patio.
