Barktoberfest 2017!

With all of you, it just keeps getting


In 2016, over 300 adopters, dog lovers and SPR fans joined us for an amazing celebration of all things SPR! So of course we’re very excited to announce the 3rd ANNUAL BARKTOBERFEST FUNDRAISER, Saturday, October 14th from 11:00 am - 4:00 pm at 182 Southern Ave, Essex, MA. Rain or Shine.

Barktoberfest is an interactive, fun festival for the entire family to support a great cause. Friendly, LEASHED dogs are welcome!

This is a great chance to meet the Sweet Paws team, including our Southern rescuers from Mississippi & Alabama – the brave women who are on the front lines, saving dogs every single day. We’ll have all kinds of activities to keep the kids – and dogs – busy, music and a great mix of adopters from near and far.

So come to Essex, throw a blanket down and hang out with us for the day.

Suggested entrance fee of $10 per person, $20 per family.

Food and refreshments available for purchase, all proceeds go directly to the dogs!
