Critter Events for January 30th – February 7th


Welcome to the weekend! There are a couple critter events that might tempt you to go out in the snow, in addition to some cool “Save the Date” events shared in the post. This week’s featured adoptable is Spunky, a blackish/brown 1 year old male guinea pig. He would make a lovely addition to any family! You can adopt him at the Larimer Humane Society.

February 1st

Bird Festival and Avian Appreciation Days at Bath Garden Center with the Rocky Mountain Raptor Program. Fort Collins Audubon Society, Environmental Learning Center and more.

Come by and see beautiful exotic birds of prey and talk with experts from local birding organizations to learn more about the amazing creatures we have right here in Colorado. There will also be a performance by the Thunderbirds at 11, 1 and 3.

When: 10 a.m. 4 p.m.

Where: Bath Garden Center at Prospect and Timberline, or 484-5022 for more information.

February 2nd

Groundhog Day! I wonder if he will see his shadow this year – it has been snowing a lot lately!

The Puppy Bowl X!

The Puppy Bowl X will air during the Super Bowl, but is also replayed for those who miss the original airing at 3 p.m. EST. It’s two hours long of pure critter joy. You can check it out on Animal Planet, but I have yet to find a live streaming option.

During the WHOLE month of February…
