On Saturday, October 27 from 10:00 - 4:00 Pensacola Humane Society presents the area's favorite annual pet friendly festival, Barktoberfest, at Community Maritime Park!
The fall weather will be wonderful and food and beverages abundant as the Pensacola Humane Society assembles an event that is like no other in the area. The public is encouraged to join in the fun starting at 10 a.m.
Contests are always a part of the fun and these begin starting at 11:00 AM at the Pavillion. There is a morning and an afternoon session. The afternoon session begins at 2:00 p.m. The agility display and the Dachshund and Small Dog races are always a hit, so plan to stop by this year's Barktoberfest.
The always popular Barktoberfest tee shirts will be available for purchase at the Pensacola Humane Society area.
The event serves as the primary fundraiser of the year for the Pensacola Humane Society. It also serves as an opportunity for the other animal welfare organizations to raise funds.

About Pensacola Humane Society
From a tiny shelter with one employee, the Pensacola Humane Society has grown into a thriving and dedicated group of volunteers, community advocates and professional staff.
Incorporated in 1943, the organization originally rounded up strays and investigated animal cruelty cases. Over the decades the shelter moved from an old wooden building to a small masonry structure to its current location, and along the way added educational programs, popular fundraisers and, in 1985, became a no-kill facility, where dogs and cats are provided food, shelter, medical care and love until they find their forever homes.
In the forefront of spay and neuter education, the Pensacola Humane Society has led the way over seven decades in the belief that animals are sentient beings who experience pain and suffering, and that it is our responsibility to attend to their needs and to treat them with dignity and respect. Join the Pensacola Humane Society as it endeavors over the next decade to make Pensacola a no-kill community, where there are homes enough for every animal and no need to euthanize healthy animals.
