Pet Cemetery

It’s becoming increasingly acceptable to dress your pets up for Halloween, but with the plethora of dog-friendly parties popping up in the area, however will you choose which one will best appreciate Fluffy’s exotic-dancer getup? Why not go by sheer altruism? Dr. Edward A. Garcia has spent thousands of dollars and hours helping homeless pets, plus senior citizens and others who can’t afford to pay for pet care. But he’s in danger of losing the North Metro Pet Hospital due to rising costs.

That’s where you (and Fluffy) come in: Head to the hospital, 1050 West 47th Avenue, for today’s Haunted Animal Hospital. Attractions include a Trail of Thrills, ten rooms of scary exhibits, a pet caricature artist, animal psychics, vendors and much more. Admission is $10 for adults and free for kids.
