The Humane Society of Calloway County's BARKtoberfest will be Sat., Oct. 12th from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Murray Central Park Courthouse Pavilion. As a spectator or participant, enjoy pet contests such as best tail wagger, terrific tricks, dog/human look-alike and best vocal performance. A special feature of BARKtoberfest will be costume contests with prizes for Most Adorable, Best Handmade, Most Original, Scariest and Funniest.
There will be a cake walk for people and musical hoops and bobbing for hot dogs for the dogs and concessions for people and dogs. Pets and their families can have commemorative photographs taken before a festive fall backdrop.
Great t-shirts will be available with fun, new designs touting pet adoption and love of pets. Microchip your dog, discover your dog's ancestry with a DNA kit, get custom pet ID tags and purchase collars and leashes.
Attendees will be treated to demonstrations of search and rescue and obedience by trained search and rescue dogs.
This year’s BARKtoberfest is sure to be fun for everyone and proceeds will benefit programs of the Humane Society such as spay/neuter assistance, Friends of the Shelter, Good Samaritan, Dog and Cat Adoption and many others. The Humane Society reminds everyone that all well-behaved dogs up-to-date on their vet care and on a leash at all times are welcome to attend. No females in season or aggressive dogs, please.
