Dogtoberfest 2021

Online & In-Person Fall FUNdraiser

This fall, we invite you join us for online and in-person fun to raise critical funds for our Extended Care & Advocacy, Foster, and Transfer programs. By reaching our goal of $25,000, you can ensure that every animal in our care has a better start, better chance, and better life.

Now through November 3rd, you can invite your family and friends to help you raise the most funds for shelter pets online and come to any of our Dogtoberfest fundraising events.

  • Online FUNdraiser: By registering at and uploading up to eight (8) photos of pets, people, and/or places, you can participate in peer-to-peer fundraising, win cash and grand prizes, such as a private airplane ride from Cable Airport, whale watching session in Newport Beach, and more.  The sooner you register, the more time you have to raise funds and make it a WIN-WIN for you and shelter pets!
