Natchez-Adams County Humane Society hosts Howloween Spooktacular

 

NATCHEZ — The Natchez-Adams County Humane Society invites local ghouls  and goblins to its first Howloween PAWS Party.

From 7 to 10 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 28, Lisa Flattmann and her husband Dr. Geoffrey Flattmann will open their haunted haven at 1046 U.S. 61 South to area animal lovers looking for a spooky time the purrfect opportunity to help area dogs and cats.

“It will be quite a spectacle,” NACHS shelter manager Lena McKnight said.

McKnight said the Flattmanns will have their house decorated for holiday. Costumes are encouraged, but not mandatory.

Known for her love of everything orange and black, Lisa Flattmann recently offered to McKnight the suggestion of creating a Halloween fundraiser to help rescue animals.

With this year’s theme inspired by the movie “Nightmare Before Christmas” McKnight said coming to see the decorations will be part of the fun.

“It will absolutely be worth coming to see what Lisa has planned for the house,” McKnight said. “All of the funds raised during the party will go the Natchez-Adams County Humane Society.”

McKnight said a lot is planned for the evening, starting with a red carpet entrance to the house. At the end of the red carpet will be a custom made backdrop for photographs.

A pickup truck, provided by Natchez Ford, will also be parked at the entrance for donations of dog and cat food for the shelter. Also on hand will be a puppy kissing booth.

“For a small donation you will get lots of puppy kisses,” McKnight said.

Tickets for the event are $50 for singles and $75 for two people.

“You don’t have to be married or even dating,” McKnight said. “You can bring a friend or a co-worker. We just want people to come and have a good time.”

Cost of admission includes food and two drink tickets, McKnight said. A cash bar will be available. The event is only open to adults 21 years old and older.

McKnight said NACHS has recently looked at changing up some of its fundraisers, focusing on a few big events rather than a series of small fundraisers. She said she hopes the Howloween Party will become one of the big annual events.

“We wanted to create a big spectacular event everybody looks forward to,” she said.
