2019 Halloween Event Guide

By on October 3, 2019

Summer events have wrapped up, but Halloween offers another opportunity to get out, enjoy the community, and have some fun with pets. Here, you’ll find a list of events (thanks to Gary Kudym- State Farm!) to take part in with ghoulish friends with both two and four legs! Happy Howl-o-ween!

Now through Oct. 23 – Halloween Photo Contest from the Green Spot!

Here’s how it works:

Simply submit your dog’s pic, name and category of entry here (along with a $5 donation to HHP). We will accept submissions now through October 23.

We’ll gather those submissions, share them on our Facebook page as an album and then invite our fans and followers to like their favorites!

We will choose 1 winner in each of the categories to win a $50 gift card to The Green Spot! The photo with the most likes overall will be our grand prize winner and will receive a Howl-O-Ween gift basket!

Categories: Most Original, Best Couple, Best “Other Animal” Impersonation

Good luck! Winners will be announced on Thursday, November 1st and will be contacted by email.

All October long – MEOW-lloween at Town and Country Humane Society

Move over, goblins and ghouls — this October, we are celebrating MEOW-lloween! What better way to celebrate than by adopting one of our Spooktacular kittens!?

Adoptable kitties from Town & Country Humane Society!

For the month of October, several of our “Halloween” colored kittens have reduced adoption fees to help make room in our Lincoln foster care program! Be sure to check out the kittens bios here to see who is included:(https://townandcountryhumanesociety.org/adopt/).

October 12, 2019 – Earl May’s Annual Pumpkin Festival

This annual event is always great, but it’s especially great because it’s pet friendly.

This from the Earl May Nursery & Garden Center Facebook page: “Generally we say yes (to pet friendliness), as long as they are on a leash! However it is best to double check with your local Earl May Garden Center to make sure they do not have any other policy! For the Omaha location, as long as your pet is on a leash and well behaved they are welcome!”
