ALTUS, OK (KSWO) -The Altus Animal Shelter is hosting a special event Sunday, April 24, to have fun and recruit volunteers to spend time with their animals.

"Sometimes you're just shorthanded, so our goal is to get volunteers that can come out and spend quality time with the pets. I don't mean hours and hours, just sometimes to come out and walk the pets because they're boarded, of course, 23 hours of the day,”

The first ever Altus Animal Festival will have several different animal organizations on site to give information about themselves and encourage people to volunteer at the shelter.

There will be also be a number of fun events, like a dog costume contest, a dance group and a K9 presentation from the Altus Police Department. 

The event is Sunday, April 24, from 1:30 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. at the Altus Community Center on Falcon Road.
