Creeptacular returns to Seattle Animal Shelter Oct. 6

Meet and greet furry, scaly and feathered critters, photo booth and more

Creeptacular returns to Seattle Animal Shelter on Saturday, Oct. 6, as the shelter dons spooky decorations and invites the public to meet and greet furry, scaly and feathered critters. From 1-4 p.m., visitors to this free, kid- and adult-friendly experience can pet and feed guinea pigs, come to face to face with lizards and delight in the antics of turtles and mice.

“We’re thrilled to host Creeptacular for a second year to bring attention to adoptable animals beyond cats and dogs,” said Ann Graves, Seattle Animal Shelter executive director. “Critters come in all kinds of shapes and sizes, with different personalities and characteristics and requiring specific care. We would love to introduce you to our critters – they may be the perfect animal for your family.”

Shelter staff and volunteers, as well as representatives from the Pacific Northwest Herpetological Society, All Parrot Rescue and Washington Ferret Rescue, will be on hand to share information about critter care. Attendees can also capture the day’s festivities in the Creeptacular photo booth.

Critters – as well as cats and dogs – will be available for adoption all day.

The Seattle Animal Shelter, located at 2061 15th Ave. W., is open from 1-6 p.m. Wednesday-Sunday for adoptions and licensing. For more information, call 206-386-PETS (7387) or visit http://www.seattleanimalshelter.org.
