On October 20th, the Animal Protection Center of Southeastern Massachusetts (APCSM) will host our second annual Dogtoberfest at the APCSM’s facility in Brockton. This will be an exciting evening featuring a tasting of great local beers courtesy of
- Tenth District Brewery
- Barrel House Z
- Widowmaker Brewery
- Bourbon tastings by The Wine Basket
Along with delicious food courtesy of NanTra Catering and live music by The Bird Gangs. This fun evening of food and drink is being held to support the mission of the APCSM, to positively impact the lives of animals in our community.
The highlight of last year’s event was undoubtedly the contest to crown the king or queen of Dogtoberfest from our available, adoptable dogs. Each dog strutted his or her stuff to a specifically chosen theme song. Participants overwhelmingly voted for Queen Lily!
During the past nine years, the shelter has successfully cared for countless animals, facilitated thousands of adoptions, provided affordable enrichment programs, and been an agency that advocates for animal welfare issues. In 2016 alone, the APCSM helped place over 1000 animals in their new forever homes. There are many success stories to celebrate – but the need is continuous.
Our ability to continue this work and meet the needs of our community is only possible because of support from people like you.
This year we are also offering a designated driver ticket for half price. This $20 ticket allows designated drivers and non-drinkers to still enjoy the food, music, and fun of Dogtoberfest without the beer or the take-home pint glass. You will get a wristband on entry that designates you a non-drinker.
