Franklin’s Friends is proud to present the seventh annual HOWL-O-WEEN
on October 24, 2020. Given the COVID-19 pandemic, the event will look a little bit different this year. We've decided to call it HOWL-O-WEEN v2020 - and we think it will be a ton of fun for the whole family!

We also have fabulous prizes for the second and third place dog and cat photos. Voting closes at 9 am October 24. Click for full rules.
3. Our first ever HOWL-O-WEEN Zoom Background Contest is now accepting submissions!

4. On October 24 at 10 am, WMMO's Denise Ryan will return to emcee
We will join a MASSIVE zoom call (with our pets in full costume). Access to the Zoom meetup will be $5 per person - but individuals who raise (or donate) $50 via peer to peer fundraising OR the pet photo contest and packs who raise (or donate) $500 via peer to peer fundraising OR the pet photo contest will get free access. We will vote for the best HOWL-O-WEEN Zoom backgrounds. We will play trivia and bingo, participate in a virtual scavenger hunt, and more!

The event will also livestream for free from this website but you won't be able to interact with the emcee and other guests and participate in the engaging virtual fun!
