The Hayward Animal Shelter will host its annual Hot Pawgust Nights car show fundraiser and animal adoption event on Saturday, Aug. 26. 

All pet adoptions will be $20 to qualified homes from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. A $17 license fee applies to all dogs adopted to Hayward residents. 

In the spirit of the original Hot August Nights, the shelter will showcase an array of classic cars and trucks. There also will be live bands, food, raffles, activities for kids and a special guest appearance by Nate Branch, legendary 15-year veteran of the Harlem Globe trotters.

If you are interested in displaying your car to help support the shelter, register here, email or call (510) 881-7927. There is a $25 registration fee which will go toward providing medical care, toys, food or other supplies for the shelter animals.
