LOOK: Adoptable Pets at Animal Planet's 'Adopt-A-Palooza' in Silver Spring

Animal Planet and Petfinder sponsored the Silver Spring event to showcase shelter dogs and cats.

Ghouls and ghosts may be the more well-known ceatures of October, but the month is also designated as "Adopt a Shelter Dog Month," according to Discovery Communications.

Animal Planet and Petfinder teamed up to last week at the network's Silver Spring headquarters to trot out a few really cute dogs and cats looking for homes. 

The event, which took place Thursday, Oct. 11, was part of Animal Planet's R.O.A.R. campaign, which advocates for animals and encourages people to volunteer in their communities. 

Check out the photos of some of the pets that were available last week. If you're looking for a pet of your own, visit Petfinder.com.
