What is Dogtoberfest?
Dogtoberfest is First Coast No More Homeless Pets’ largest public fundraising event. It is also one of the largest outdoor pet events in Northeast Florida. Dogtoberfest centers on a fundraising dog walk and dog costume contest. Over 1,500 people and 1,000 animal companions participated last year and we expect many more in 2012.
