MONSON, Mass. (WWLP) – The 10th annual Cruise for Critters is back at Westview Farms Creamery in Monson on Saturday.

This fall fundraiser features a car show, Halloween Barktacular kids games, vendors, raffles, live music by Spare Parts, and more, all to benefit animals in need at Second Chance Animal Services. The fundraiser is presented by Al Widlan’s Service Connection of Monson.

“It’s such a fun event with something for everyone.  There’s always a great turnout of cars for this end-of-season show.  We have a great selection of vendors joining us this year and many amazing raffle items donated by our supporters. “Plus we’ll have lots of fun for the kids too, including our Halloween Barktacular games like fishing for eyeballs and a giant slingshot. The farm has some adorable goats who always put on a good show and live music will be provided by Spare Parts.” Second Chance CEO and founder Sheryl Blancato
