2015 BARKTOBERFEST & ROVER ROMP
Saturday, October 10 – 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Roegner Park, 601 Oravetz Rd SE, Auburn
Only 8 Days left to fundraise for Barktoberfest
4TH Annual Fundraiser
Click here to register for our annual family and pet friendly event featuring a 3K and 5K run/walk with the family dog. The event includes dog costume contests, Muttsical chairs, demonstrations, kidszone, specialty vendors, plus entertainment, raffles and pet licensing.
Because of Barktoberfest & Rover Romp, we are able to help hundreds of lost and homeless animals each year. Over 2,000 animals were able to receive medical supplies and microchips. Each animal receives individual care and attention to allow them to be adoptable. They receive the basics of food, shelter and comfort. Volunteers and staff provide training while walking the dogs three times a day.
Please setup your own page by pledging for Barktoberfest and make your tax-deductible donation today. We need your help to raise $35,000 to continue the quality care for the dogs and cats.
