Dogtoberfest brings pet rescue organizations to Kiawah
The temperature is dropping, the leaves are changing and fall is in the air. What better way to spend a day than sipping delicious wine, drinking craft beer, eating great food and helping out a worthy cause?
The sixth annual Dogtoberfest event, taking place on Oct. 19 from 1 – 5 p.m. at Freshfields Village near Kiawah Island, brings together pet rescue organizations from around the Lowcountry. The free event includes:
• Meet-and-greets with local rescue groups (on-site adoptions are not permitted due to screening requirements)
• Wine tasting ($15 per ticket, includes a commemorative wine glass)
• Craft beers and delicious food
• Live entertainment
• On-site vendors
• Pet costume contest
• Blessing of the animals
• Exciting prizes and giveaways and more.
Proceeds from the event benefit participating pet rescue organizations, including: Shih Tzus and Furbabies, Grateful Goldens Rescue, Greyhounds Pets of America - Charleston, Carolina Coonhound Rescue, Pet Helpers, Water’s Edge Animal Rescue, Lowcountry Lab Rescue and King Charles Cavalier Rescue.
Event sponsors include: Freshfields Village, Angel Oak Animal Hospital, Akers Ellis Real Estate and Rentals, Charleston Veterinary Referral Center, Dawg Tired and Cat Naps Too, Creekside Pet Retreat and Total Wine and More.
Dogtoberfest was established in 2008 to increase exposure for local rescue organizations and as a way to educate Kiawah, Seabrook and Johns island residents on pet rescue and proper pet care. The event has since moved to the Freshfields Village shopping and dining complex and expanded to include a charity wine tasting.
