Dogs, cats and even a turtle found their forever families Saturday at Woofstock Pet Adoption and Music Festival in Tacoma.

Dugan Foundation and Pawsitive Alliance sponsor Woofstock, held at the University of Puget Sound.

Organizers say 98 pets found homes.

They say while big strides have been made to find homes for homeless animals, more than 40,000 still die annually in Washington State for want of a home. 

At this weekend's event, there will be experts on hand for guidance on a good fit for your home, merchants with services, goods and toys to prepare your pet for its new life, and entertainment from some of Tacoma's great musicians.
