Join Hello Bully — and bring your dogs to DogtoberFEST!

DogtoberFEST is CARMAA’s premier animal adoption event. This celebration of adoption has been held the first weekend of October since 2010!

DogtoberFEST is an outdoor festival to showcase the many healthy and adoptable animals that are waiting for homes at more than 100 rescues and shelters in the Western Pennsylvania region. This event also helps to bring animal rescues and shelters together for one day as a collective community of compassionate people, advocating every day for homeless animals.

Come meet your new best friend at DogtoberFEST!

We will have close to 100 vendors, rescues & shelters.  We will have a dog enrichment trail and an Art Show featuring artists from the North Hills Art Center!

And don’t forget our pet costume contest!  We will be giving away $500 in prizes!

This is a free event and dog friendly if your dog is well behaved.  We just ask to please leave the retractable leashes at home!

  • The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania does not permit dogs to be adopted at any public place.
  • Dog meet/greets are encouraged and applications can be placed with the various shelter and rescue groups.
  • Adoptions will be facilitated through the individual groups at their discretion.
