       The Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region will hold its ninth annual Adopt-a-thon July 16 and 17 from 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at 610 Abbott Lane.
       Staff and volunteers hope to find homes for 125 animals over the weekend, and adoption fees for cats and dogs will be reduced by $10 to help achieve this goal, according to Humane Society spokesperson Ann Hagerty.
       The event will also feature a “pet festival,” including a trainer's booth, animal rescue organizations, pony rides, a small petting zoo, crafts and games, she said.
