Annual Pawtoberfest is back after several years to benefit homeless and abused pups

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- The Pikes Peak Humane Society's annual Pawtoberfest kicked off at 9 a.m. Saturday at Bear Creek Regional Park.

The event is one of the humane society's most popular fundraisers. It was expected to draw more than 1,500 people and bring in over $200,000 to benefit the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region.

All ticket sales benefit the humane society's programs.

Pawtoberfest is one of Colorado's only dog-friendly festivals, bringing pups, beer, and German culture together for a play on Octoberfest. The event features craft brews and spirits tasting, a two-mile dog walk, freebies, music, pet contests, family-friendly activities, and food from local food trucks. 

After a two-year hiatus due to the pandemic, the community is very excited to have the event back in full swing.

The event goes until 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 17.
