The fourth annual Barktoberfest is a rescue appreciation event to celebrate the partnership between Orange County Animal Services and the rescue community is tomorrow at Lake Eola Park (on the south east grassy area) in Downtown Orlando from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm.
For this event Orange County Animal Services works with approximately 70 rescue partners that aid in the recovery and adoption of many homeless animals.
Barktoberfest will have many of these rescued pets available for adoption, and along with adoptable animals there will also be delicious food trucks, pet microchipping, vendors, raffles and more!
Lambs Eat Ivy Salon‘s SHAMPOOCH event will be taking place just steps from Lake Eola, along Washington Street. SHAMPOOCH invites people to bring their owned pets for a day of dog washing fun with proceeds benefitting a local pet rescue group.
Free microchipping will be conducted by Animal Services from 11 a.m. – 2 p.m. Low-cost rabies vaccinations will be offered by the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando for $5 between 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.
