Our Trick or Treat event was a “howling” good time!




This year we hosted a Halloween event at both of our locations in Oakland and Dublin. Our “Howl-oween” festival aimed to provide a safe, fun and educational experience for all trick or treaters!


We kicked off our event with a ten question scavenger hunt, where children and families had to navigate through the shelter to find clues and answer questions. Each question was educational; all questions related to basic animal care or fun animal facts! At various of the scavenger stations we even had some of our shelter animals help give clues and demonstrate answers. We also had two bunny stations, where children could pet bunnies and learn about rabbit care. After participants answered the question they received a piece of candy and travelled to the next scavenger hunt table. Here is a small sample of some of our fun fact-filled questions:

What is the difference between a bunny and a rabbit?

What are 3 things that pets need?

Cats should drink milk, True or False?

After the scavenger hunt, participants had the opportunity to participate in our wickedly fun Halloween games and arts and crafts. Some of these include playing musical tombstones, pin the nose on the pumpkin, hot pumpkin as well as making popcorn hands and lollypop spiders.

A very special thanks to all of our Halloween volunteers; we could not have run the event without all of your enthusiasm and dedication. Thanks for helping foster a safe and exciting Halloween environment for all to enjoy. And, best of all, thanks for joining us in spirit and wearing your Halloween costume!

Busy Day in Tri-Valley today!


I love seeing Club Second Chance animals go to good homes. We adopted 2 CSC cats as well as 5 other adult cats, 2 kittens, 1 CSC dog and 2 puppies. All this chaos while also hosting our monthly Rabbit event and being short one staff member. The staff (and volunteers!) worked hard and deserve a nice pat on the back and a big thank you.
