Gather all your wee ghosties and goblins! HOWL-O-WEEN is coming!

When: Sunday, October 28th, 2-5 PM
Where: Alice F. Keene Park, 4561 County Home Rd, Greenville

What: a fall carnival and fundraiser benefiting HSEC and the Pitt County Animal Shelter. Our first joint fundraiser! Get up to the minute information on our Facebook event page.

The pet costume contest is our featured event, taking place at 3:00. We will pick a winner from the categories Best Couple (animal/human or animal/animal), Most Creative, Scariest, and Funniest. Registration for the contest begins at 2:00 and is 5$ per entry. Each winner receives a prize, so get those costumes ready to go!

Looking for a deal? Check out our pet supplies yard sale (new and gently used items). Then swing by the silent auction, where you can bid on services like a 30 minute massage certificate from Kinetic Physical Therapy and Wellness, 2 nights boarding at the "Five Paw" Hoffman Haus Pet Resort and 4 football tickets to the ECU/Houston game, among others!

We'll have plenty of activities for kids as well, including color-your-own trick or treat bags, and paint-your-own photo frames. Put those frames to good use with a visit to the photobooth by Funpoochfoto. Spaces for the booth are limited, so if you want to reserve a spot, be sure to register online ahead of time. Check out photographer Ana Maria Hernandez-Barrios' Howl-o-Ween Pinterest page for costume and picture inspiration.

Vendors and businesses in attendance will include Faithful Friends Veterinary Hospital, New Levels Dog Training, Tenth Street Animal Hospital, Critter Creations by Betty, East Carolina Veterinary Service, Banfield Pet Hospital, Loreta's Frozen Yogurt (with free doggie fro-yo samples!!), and MORE!

If you're hungry after all that fun, stop by our bake sale. Interested in donating items to the bake sale? Contact

We want to help keep your pets safe. Spay Today will provide a microchipping service for $25 dollars. If your pet is ever lost, this chip can help bring them home. Check out our post on microchipping for more information.

And of course, we'll have plenty of adorable, adoptable pets at the adoption stand. Dogs from HSEC and Great Dane Rescue Alliance will be there hoping to meet their forever family. If you're looking for a new addition to your home, you might just fall in love. For every HSEC adoption, we will transfer one animal from Pitt County Animal Shelter.

Are you excited yet? We are! We can't wait to see you there!
