This year's Bark For Life is being put on by both Absecon Veterinary Hospital and the American Cancer Society. Not only are they trying to do a lot of wonderful things for pets, but their making sure they have plenty of ways to entertain the kids, too. It sounds like it's shaping up to be a one-of-a-kind fall festival.

Seriously though, with things like the pet show, the petting zoo, seeing eye dog demonstration, and even caricatures, it sounds like there will be something fun for everyone in attendance.

Oh, there's even a bake sale, too.

If you're interested in attending Absecon Vet's Bark For Life event, make sure you check out their Facebook page.
