DogtoberFEST 2017

DogtoberFEST 2017 Header Banner

DogtoberFEST is CARMAA’s premier animal adoption event. This celebration of adoption has been held the first weekend of October since 2010!

Through DogtoberFEST, CARMAA promotes our goal of educating the public about the number of resources that are available for adopting a companion animal. DogtoberFEST is an outdoor festival and showcase for the many healthy and adoptable animals that are waiting for homes at more than 100 rescues and shelters in the Western Pennsylvania region. And, our event also helps to bring animal rescues and shelters together for one day as a collective community of compassionate people, advocating every day for homeless animals. Working together, these organizations will educate our DogtoberFEST attendees on the benefits of adopting a pet instead of buying an animal through a newspaper ad or pet store. Come meet your new best friend at DogtoberFEST!
