The compound challenges of the pandemic and the Almeda Fire stopped Friends of the Animal Shelter (FOTAS) from holding in-person fundraisers in 2020, except one – the October crafts fair at the Historic Jacksonville Courthouse. The support of this pet-friendly community was so enthusiastic that FOTAS will reprise the event in 2021 as the Howl-O-Ween & Holidays Fair on October 30-31, 10am-4pm. Animal lovers and those who enjoy the Fall and Winter holidays will have a fun opportunity to shop early for gifts and decor, from “trick or treat” to “Happy New Year!”

The Historic Jacksonville Courthouse grounds provide a wonderful venue, and FOTAS is counting on our community’s artists and crafters to help fill it with their donated creations. Top sellers last year included quilts, ceramics, jewelry and attire. This year, we expect demand for Halloween costumes for both pets and their humans. The season
