Between five children and three dogs, Sarah Weaver had her hands full Saturday during the Mutts & More Festival at Fowler Park.“As soon as we came out, they were searching for other dogs to play with,” Weaver said of her pets.Weaver, a volunteer with Angels Among Us, was both helping with the group’s booth and attending the event with her family, something she said is a rarity for adoption events.“This is the first adoption event that … includes my family so that they can come and have a good time and bring the puppies out. I love it.”The event served two purposes, said co-chair Karen Deal. The first is fundraising.
