Deer Park Animal Hospital hosted the eighth annual Spooktacular Howl-loween Family & Pet Extravaganza recently at the Ella and Friends Dog Park in Deer Park.
The event allowed families to bring their pets for a costume contest and other fun activities. It was held in conjunction with Spencer Animal Hospital with matching donations by both animal hospitals to raise a total of $3,043.00 donated to A New Dawn, a no-kill animal shelter.
A New Dawn is a non-profit adoption agency and shelter, providing homes and foster care for animals that would otherwise have been euthanized. The organization depends on donations, volunteers, and third-party special events, like the annual Spooktacular event.
