The event will include a spooky scavenger hunt, scary surprise boxes, grim games and creepy crafts for children of all ages including make your own doggy ‘poop’. There will also be refreshments.

Kerry Chambler, Education Officer at Dogs Trust Evesham said:

“Keeping the children entertained during the half term can sometimes be a challenge. Our howl-o-ween kids party is great fun for the whole family whilst getting into the spirit of Halloween!

“We have some great activities planned that the kids will love, and you’ll also have the chance to look around our rehoming centre and see some of our four-legged residents who are looking for a home."

Dogs Trust Evesham cares for around 80 dogs at any one time. Our Education & Community Officers hold regular events throughout the year at schools and in the community to help educate children on responsible dog ownership. The Halloween event is designed to encourage children to come into the centre and have fun whilst learning about dog safety around Halloween.
