Dogtoberfest 2019 was FURTASTIC!

SHARE:

Dogtoberfest 2019 was a great day for dogs and humans alike!

One thousand humans and their dog friends enjoyed beer, food, bluegrass and more to support Dane County Humane Society on Sunday, September 15 at Capital Brewery and Bier Garten for Dogtoberfest 2019. Guests listened to live bluegrass music by Milkhouse Radio and Bluegrass TeA & Company, tipped back tasty Capital Brewery brews, had tasty lunch provided by Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream Co., Surya Cafe, The Ugly Apple Cafe, and Pizza Brutta, captured the moment in our photo booth, got a nail trim and more, all while enjoying a beautiful fall day (and the Packers game). An anonymous supporter offered a $1,000 matching gift for our first Dogtoberfest Matching Gift Challenge ever, and we doubled our goal!

With over 1000 human attendees, 22 businesses who provided sponsorship and support, 4 food vendors, 24 costume contest contestants and 42 volunteers helping the event run smoothly we were able to raise over $28,000 to provide compassion, comfort and care to animals in need at Dane County Humane Society!!
