Dogtoberfest in November

Hosted by the Suncoast Animal League, this community gathering helps all of the shelter dogs find homes for the holidays.

Chance, a very tall Golden from Golden Retriever Rescue of Mid-Florida, Inc. visited as a canine volunteer.

What is it?

The 11th annual Dogtoberfest came and went… in November. Each year at this time the Suncoast Animal League holds this special event to raise donations and help their dogs find homes for the holidays. By introducing some of their rescued dogs and collecting proceeds to go toward the shelter in which many dogs reside, many people return home with a new four-legged best friend.

Who can be found there?

The event is open to anyone in the community and all of their canines. Visitors can shop around at tents set up by different organizations that will benefit the dogs of the community.
