About Barktoberfest

We are excited to announce the date for this year's Barktoberfest event - Nov. 17, 2019!

Barktoberfest is the shelter’s rescue appreciation event that serves to celebrate the partnership between OCAS and the rescue community. Animal Services currently works with more than 100 rescue groups across the state that aid in the recovery and adoption of homeless animals.
