On Sunday, Oct. 21, from noon-3 p.m., hundreds of Atlantans of all ages, and dogs of all breeds are invited for a Halloween-themed event – all while raising funds for a worthy nonprofit.
This year’s beneficiary, The W-Underdogs, pairs at-risk youth in Peoplestown/South Atlanta with animals in need to teach the kids leadership, responsibility and compassion as they learn to train and care for dogs.
The family-friendly festival is free for people, and $5 per dog. Costume-contest entry is an additional $5. At Dogtoberfest, attendees will enjoy:
All dogs entering Dogtoberfest will need to be spayed/neutered and on leashes (not the retractable kind).
