NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Delgado Community College is going to the dogs with its Animal Expo.
The annual event is free, and not limited to people. Leashed dogs with up-to-date vaccinations are welcome at the City Park campus from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday.
It includes a demonstration of pet first aid, a blessing of the animals, a search and rescue demonstration, a Halloween costume contest for dogs, and an appearance by Tia Torres of Animal Planet's "Pit Bulls and Parolees."
There's also a children's area, vendor booths, American Kennel Club canine good citizen testing, pet photos, dog baths, ear cleaning and "pawticures."
The annual event raises money for Delgado's veterinary technology program.
