Several dogs gathered to partake in a recent scavenger hun.

Second Chance Animal Rescue of Windsor-Essex County hosted a Halloween-themed scavenger hunt at the Sutton Funeral Home.

Bags full of dog treats were hidden all along the property as owner and dogs raced to find them. Three bags contained tags, indicating a prize had been won. Additionally, prizes were also awarded for best dog costumes.

Despite the rainy weather keeping many dogs and owners from attending the event, Julie Bortolotti, a board member with Second Chance Animal Rescue said events like these are important as it helps sustain their organization.

“We provide all the food, veterinary care, toys, beds and whatever the animal needs to be happy and healthy,” said Bortolotti. “That’s why we have events like this, to help raise money to pay for veterinary care.
