Looking for something to do with your ghouls and boys this holiday season? Humane Animal Rescue of Pittsburgh’s Wildlife Rehabilitation Center (located at 6000 Verona Road, Verona PA 15147) is hosting fun howl-o-ween events for the whole family.
Families are invited to create some spooky enrichment to help keep our animal ambassadors healthy and engaged by making a Monster Box. The event takes place on Friday, October 21st from 5:00 – 6:00 p.m. In addition to the fun family-friendly craft, the event also includes a tour of the Wildlife Center’s Raptor Row and an animal encounter with education ambassador, Clover the Skunk. Children must be at least 6 years old to attend and be accompanied by an adult. Costumes are encouraged! Go to humaneanimalrescue.org/events/ to register for the event.
Join us outside on Friday, October 28th at sunset for back to back classic movies (Little Shop of Horrors and Night of the Living Dead), popcorn and candy free with admission, and maybe a visit by one of our wildlife education ambassadors. Gates open at 7:30 p.m. and the movies begin at 8:00 p.m. Feel free to bring your own snacks and drinks. Note, this is an alcohol-free event.
Due to limited space, only 50 spots are available for the event. Go to givebutter.com/HARPFrightNight to purchase tickets. Bring a donation of items from our wish list and receive 2 raffle tickets for a chance to win some ghoulish goodies! All donations go directly to saving Pennsylvania wildlife. The wish list can be viewed at humaneanimalrescue.org/ways-to-help/ways-to-give/wishlist/
The landscape of the venue is slightly sloped so blankets or lower beach/lawn chairs are recommended. It’s sure to be a fun night for all ages and costumes are welcome!
