The Animal Welfare Society of Jefferson County will be having an adoption day at Ridgefield Farm and Orchard on Oct. 12. This will coincide with the Ridgefield's annual Pumpkin Fest. Pets from the Animal Welfare Society shelter will be on hand from 11 a.m.-3 p.m., hoping to find forever homes. AWS merchandise as well as information about it's upcoming Paws and Claws Howl-O-Ween Dinner and Auction at the Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races on Oct. 26 will be available.

The Animal Welfare Society has been providing services to the community since 1952 and operates a no-kill shelter on Leetown Pike.
