Posted: Updated:

(NEWS 8) - After watching this cute video of dogs in costumes and learning about the top 10 Halloween costumes for pets this year, you'll probably feel the urge to go out and add to your fur family.

The good news is that all the animals you see in the interview, plus nearly 350 more, will be up available for adoption this Saturday at SDShelters.org's Howl-O-Ween Hounds MEGA Adoption Event at the Grossmont center. The animals come from all over the country, including areas affected by recent natural disasters. Adoption agencies showcasing pets at the event include TheRescuedPup.com, FriendsofCats.org, LionIsLegacy.org, PEAC.org and GreatPyrRescue.org.

Joining News 8's Nichelle Medina Tuesday were Scout, a 1-and-a-half-year-old fluffy terrior (dressed as one of the three amigos), Lucky, a 4-month-old spooky but friendly as ever black cat, Madi, a 6-year-old chihuahua (dressed as a wicked witch), Ronald, an adult Great Pyrenees (dressed as a ladybug), and Rajah, a very vocal Amazon parrot.
