Pet World Lawrence

Pet World Spooktacular!

Spend time with the creepy crawlies this Halloween!


On the Saturday, before Halloween, kids are invited to enroll in our Parents Night Out, Halloween edition! Click here for details. 

On Halloween evening, costumed trick-or-treaters are invited to stop by Pet World and trick or treat the employees! PW staff will be costumed and loaded with lots of candy!

When owners, Tim and Sherry had children, they built a temporary haunted house for the neighborhood kids to enjoy on Halloween night with the intention of running it five or six years, while their kids were little. It was operated not only by Pet World employees, past and present, but also volunteers from all over the neighborhood and across Lawrence! Every year grew bigger and bigger, with different themes, including graveyards, werewolves, insane asylums, a haunted castle, a haunted old movie theatre -- Sinister Cinema -- SCARY tales (twisted fairy tales), Zombie Apocalypse, and our final year, the HAUNTED BAYOU! Everyone happily donated their time and we had so much fun we ended up running it 12 years! But now that their kids are grown, we've moved the Halloween events back to Pet World. 




2015 was the last year for the haunted house but we want to thank everyone who helped
and hope the kids will cherish those memories as much as we will!

Pet World wishes you a safe and happy Halloween!
