WILKES-BARRE -- Halloween went to the dogs at a Bark for Life event in Wilkes-Barre.

The adorable costume-wearing pups came out to Kirby Park on Saturday for the fourth annual American Cancer Society benefit.

Organizers say the event lets owners and their dogs join in the fight against cancer.

"You get to come and have fun with the dogs and support a great cause," said Sara Klinges, chairperson of Bark for Life of Wyoming Valley.

The event included a pet costume contest and basket raffles.

Organizers hoped to raise $7,500 at the cancer benefit.

    Cancer will never be cured, sure they cure some forms, but it’s big business, to much money coming from the feds for research, if they find a cure that all drys up and goes away…….not gonna happen.
