All dogs must be kept on leashes and be well-mannered and fully vaccinated.

All proceeds from the Dogtoberfest will benefit the nonprofit animal welfare organization which promotes respect for all animals through education; is committed to agricultural, environmental and wildlife conservation; and facilitates rehabilitation, rescue, and responsible pet ownership in order to enhance the human-animal bond.
