We invite you to join us at this year’s Barktoberfest.  Your support is so important to the continued success of the shelter as an Adoption Guarantee (or “No-Kill) Shelter.  Last year, we saved more than 1,000 lives, expanded our affordable vaccination clinic to include spay and neuter services, and enhanced our humane education programs.  We rely solely on support from the community to operate, through adoption fees, education and clinic fees, and through donations from community partners like you!  This year, we hope to raise $40,000 at Barktoberfest!

 

WANT TO FUNDRAISE?

The Barktoberfest Dog Walk is a pledge-walk to help raise money for our community’s homeless animals at the Peninsula SPCA! When you register to walk, you also have the opportunity to raise money for the SPCA and win prizes!

Individual Fundraisers:  When you register, you receive a free personal fundraising web page that you can customize and share with your friends, co-workers and family. Cash donations will be collected in advance of the walk during PSPCA’s Bank Days at the shelter (Tuesday and Wednesday, October 8 & 9 – 11a.m. to 5 p.m.).
