Dogtoberfest 2018 was Doggone GRRREAT!

SHARE:

Dogtoberfest 2018 was a great event for dogs and humans alike!

Over 600 humans and their dog friends enjoyed bluegrass, food and beer to support Dane County Humane Society on Sunday, September 16 at Capital Brewery and Bier Garten for Dogtoberfest 2018! Guests listened to live bluegrass music by Milkhouse Radio and Bluegrass TeA & Company, tipped back tasty Capital Brewery brews, had tasty lunch provided by The Ugly Apple Cafe, Pizza Brutta and Miko Poké, and got their pups' nails trimmed by Tabby & Jack's mobile grooming, all while enjoying a beautiful fall day (and the Packers game)!

With over 600 human attendees event, 13 businesses who provided sponsorship and support, 3 food vendors present, 26 costume contest contestants and 42 volunteers helping the event run smoothly we were able to raise about $16,000 to provide compassion, comfort and care to animals in need at Dane County Humane Society!!
