You can hire an Alpaca to visit your home in the Calgary area

You won’t soon forget partying with an alpaca.

Allen is a three year old alpaca living in Airdrie, Alberta who loves to be around people by visiting parties and gatherings in the Calgary area.

A Facebook page for Allen was created by his handlers this past summer, and he has since had quite the experience bringing a unique twist to parties.

Allen has become so popular that a recent post on his Facebook page states that, due to the avalanche of messages they’ve been receiving, the social media platform temporarily blocked the page from answering messages.

No worries, though, because while Allen may already be booked up clear through November, he does plan to make a public appearance at an outdoor event on Halloween.

Allen will be at Airdrie’s Graceful Touch Health and Wellness (136 1st Avenue) on October 31 from 1 to 3 pm, and those hoping to get a pic with the alpaca are asked to bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the Airdrie Food Bank.

It is also expected that attendees follow COVID guidelines by physical distancing.

A recent post also notes that parties Allen attends in Airdrie have a maximum limit of 50 indoors and 100 outdoors, as per the province’s coronavirus restrictions.

Calgary parties are capped at 15 both indoors and outdoors and masks are mandatory, according to new restrictions that were put into place on Monday.

While Allen is a fan of people, his Facebook page states, he is not all that fond of dogs, so anyone planning to come meet him should leave their pups at home.

Anyone hoping to hire Allen to visit their own party can do so by reaching out to the Allen the Alpaca Facebook page.
