Don't miss out on CARMAA's Celebration of Adoption, DogtoberFEST, on October 5 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the SouthSide Works, Pittsburgh (next to McCormick & Schmick's). The event starts at 11 a.m. with our Pooch Pride Parade Costume Contest with over $500 in prizes available for Most Original, Dog-Owner Lookalike and Best Homemade costumes ($5 entry fee). Adoptable dogs from shelters and rescues across our area will be available and ready to meet their potential new families! DogtoberFEST 2013 features a live band, homemade food, specialty vendors, training demonstrations and Ask-a-Vet/Ask-a-Trainer booths. Admission is FREE to the public. Bring your own dog (or dogs!) for a day of doggie fun!
Dogs cannot be adopted from the DogtoberFEST event, but applications will be received and dog meet/greets may take place. All public dogs attending must be current on vaccinations and be people and dog friendly.
