KEVIN LAMB/PHOTO Joy, a husky mix dressed as a pumpkin and Drift, a German shepherd mix in Batman garb, happily show off their Halloween costumes in advance of the Oct. 28 event that is a fundraiser for local groups that rescue dogs from northern Ontario. Joy was a community street dog in Sandy Lake near the Manitoba border and has now found a home with Dee-Anne Benson. Drift was surrendered by a family that could not afford to keep the dog due to sky-high food prices in northern communities and now lives with Ashley Viger.
