***SPECIAL FUNDRAISING PRIZE***

When you register for Dogtoberfest by Thursday, September 19 at midnight and raise at least $500 for shelter pets, you will be entered into a raffle to win a ride for two on the Goodyear Blimp!  If you've already registered, you will also be eligible for the raffle when you raise $500 or more. 

Want to sponsor the event and support shelter pets? You will also be eligible for the raffle when you donate $500 or more.  Plus, we'll place a Paw Pal sign on a kennel in the shelter with your name or your business name/logo for one year and you'll have the option of having a free vendor booth at Dogtoberfest and our other events during the year. 

The winner will be called on Friday, September 20 and the ride will take place on Wednesday, September 25 at 11:00 a.m. and launch from Gardena, California.  This is a unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity so don't hesitate to register, raise funds, and make a difference for shelter pets!  Get all the details here.
