A Scare for a Good Cause

Regardless of the warm temperatures outside, it’s fall in Midtown Montgomery. The calendar says Mid-October to be exact, and that means a busy time of football games, homecoming dances, fall festivals, and Halloween events. The later lets us have fun getting scared and even raise money for causes we love.

The Montgomery Humane Society’s Haunted House has become a Montgomery tradition–going into its sixth year of “Haunt for the Paws!” Guides lead visitors through dark, spooky hallways into rooms where ghosts, ghouls, and perhaps even a goblin or two await. The haunts of the haunted are well away from the animals so as not to disturb their sleep. But perhaps YOU won’t be sleeping much after your tour! There is no age limit, BUT there is a disclaimer on the poster that says the displays are “designed to frighten teenagers and adult.” In fact, a volunteer told me some small children could not make it through last weekend. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Even in the day time the decorations are creepy. When I visited this week I was forced to move a fake, but nonetheless black and furry spider from the paper I needed. GROSS!! The tickets are $10 in advance or $12 at the door but you can save $2 if you bring a pet food donation. The Haunted House is open from 7:30-11:00 on October 20 & 21, and October 27 & 28. The Montgomery Humane Shelter’s address is 1150 John Overton Drive and the telephone number is (334)409-0622. You can also book tickets easily on the Montgomery Humane Haunted House Facebook page. There’s a block marked “Book Now” and that’s what it does. Pictures on their Facebook page are not for the weak of heart. So it sounds like a wonderful time, and to make it even better, the money goes to helping the animals at the shelter.
