SPRINGFIELD - The Animal Protective League has announced that it will host a Halloween party for dogs and their owners on October 10.

APL officials say the party will be held from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. at Stuart Park in Springfield.  Attendees will be able to enjoy a paw-painting booth, a spray-on tattoo booth for dogs, and a buried treasure booth, where dogs will be able to dig for treats in a sandbox made just for them.
