Beer,  Dogs & Music for a pAwsome Cause: Saving Dogs’ Lives

Mark your calendars and join us for our 9th annual Bark & Brewfest fundraiser event on Saturday, September 30th from 4-8 pm at the Trinity Health Stadium (Hartford Athletic Stadium). This very popular event promises a pawsome time while supporting Dog Star Rescue’s mission of saving dogs’ lives. Join us and help us make a difference for the 3.1 million dogs that enter shelters annually in the U.S.

Since its establishment in 2014, Dog Star Rescue has successfully placed over 5,000 rescue dogs into loving homes. As a non-profit rescue, the Bark & Brewfest event is the biggest fundraiser of the year and all proceeds help directly support the rescue’s mission of guiding dogs toward better lives. Your ticket includes a beer flight from a variety of local microbreweries or a selection of spirits from Waypoint Distillery, several food trucks available for you to taste CT’s best food, great music, the ever-popular puppy cuddling booth, live demonstrations from CT Dog Gone Recovery, information about the Dog Star for Veterans program. Raffle tickets can be purchased online ahead of time or onsite for your chance to win amazing prizes. We will also have plenty of games and other surprises.

“This will be a great afternoon for all and the best part is knowing that you’re having fun while helping us save more rescue dogs. As a non-profit, we are reliant on the generosity of our event sponsors and ticket holders and in return, we hope people are ready to eat, drink, hold puppies and listen to great music,” said Dan McCabe, founder of Dog Star Rescue.

Join us this Saturday, September 30th from 4-8 pm at the Trinity Health Stadium! Tickets are $35 and can be purchased online through Facebook, Instagram and at DogStarRescue.org. Ticket prices are $40 each at the door. Dog Star Rescue is also seeking corporate sponsors who share our passion for saving dogs’ lives. Many sponsorship options are available at DogStarRescue.org.

Dog Star Rescue is a licensed non-profit organization committed to rescuing homeless, stray and abandoned dogs from both local and out of state shelters, as well as owner surrender dogs. With the tireless work of our volunteers, we place these dogs in loving forever homes through our weekly adoption events. As an all-volunteer, foster-based non-profit, we rely on the generosity of partners and supporters like you to offset our operating costs.

Come join us at our Bark & Brewfest and be part of a fundraising event that combines the love of dogs, great food and drinks, and the power of music. Let’s raise our glasses and make a toast to saving more furry friends!
