A Spooky Howl-o-ween at Utopia Animal Hospital

Thanks so much to Utopia Animal Hospital for hosting their Howl-o-Ween event and inviting Good Dog Rescue to show our pets and raise funds.

Dr. Clay and her young son James V offered blood brew punch and treats. There was trick or treating for dogs and kids at the examining rooms. For those kids who were not faint of heart, there was a surgical suite set up where they could do some gory surgery (on a manikin, of course!).

Outside the dogs bobbed for hot dogs. Some gave up on the bobbing and just jumped in to get the special treats.

The dogs got to dress up and the humans really enjoyed seeing them.

Thanks to Dr. Clay and her staff.

Former Adopter Connie Copeland and her daughter were volunteers along with Julie Clark, Robin Tate, Whitney Forbes, Brandy Schroyer, Vonna and Kathy, and Cheryl Kent.

Here’s a few pics of the event.
