UTICA, N.Y. -- Superheroes, fairies, and other characters came out to the Steven Swan Humane Society on Saturday for a little Halloween fun.
Dogs came in their best disguises for the first annual Howl-Ween celebration. There were games, photo opportunities, and best of all, treats. But for many people who attended, the biggest treat of the day was getting to see "Autumn."
You may remember, Autumn is the boxer-pitbull mix brought to the humane society a few weeks ago. She was found by police, at half her normal weight, with bones in her stomach likely from eating road kill. But as you can see, her caretakers say she's doing much better.
"She's up about 12 and a half pounds which is really great. You can barely see any of her ribs any more she looks wonderful her coat's getting shiny," said Adoption Coordinator Nicole Broccoli.
Caretakers say the community has shown Autumn a lot of support through donations and gifts. She still needs to gain about 10 more pounds, but they say she should be ready for adoption in a few weeks.
