Albany- If you hear howls from Albany's Riverfront Park this weekend, it's probably because area pets are having a good time.

The Paws Patrol Therapy Dog group is holding their second annual River Bark Saturday and Sunday in Riverfront Park. The two day event includes dog races and contests, plenty of booths to pamper your pooch and some vital information if your pet gets into trouble.

"They have pretty much the same thing you would have in a standard first aid kit, but it's more toward the pets, dogs and cats and things like that," said Chuck Mitchell, EMS.

Four local Humane Societies will be at the event with pet adoption information. The River Bark will resume tomorrow morning at eleven and runs through five o'clock.
