The Haunted Pet Cemetery at North Metro Animal Hospital
One of Colorado’s most charitable and effective veterinary hospitals is celebrating Halloween a little differently again this year. For the second year in a row, the North Metro Animal Hospital is showcasing its Haunted Animal Hospital, where both pets and people are welcomed to creep and crawl on down to a frightfully extravagant experience.
The Haunted Hospital features several different rooms, from an alien abduction surgery suite to a (staged) haunted pet cemetery. On top of that, there are also pet psychics, a pet photographer, caricature artists, exotic pets brought to you by Canyon Critters Live Reptile or Wolf Shows, and more.
While the haunted hospital makes for a fun family stop during haunted house rounds, it’s also for a good cause. Proceeds’ from the event benefit the Pets 4 People Howl-o-ween fundraiser, a non-profit that helps support the needs of homeless animals.
The states oldest practicing veterinarian, Edward Garcia, heads up both the non-profit clinic and the hospital associated with Pets 4 People. Up until now, funding for the clinic and his involvement with the homeless animal community has come out of Dr. Garcia’s pocket. But given the recent economic downturn, funds are not where they used to be.
Even scarier than the Haunted Animal Hospital is the idea that the community based service of a veterinarian as compassionate as Dr. Garcia could potentially be limited by something as simple as funding. So get down to the nations only Haunted Animal Hospital for some fun and a good cause!
The Haunted Vet Hospital runs Fridays and Saturdays in October, plus Oct. 28-31, from 5-10 pm.
