As a sincere lover of animals and the work of the SPCA of East Texas, any event that seeks to raise awareness, provide adoption opportunities for dogs, cats, and even potbelly pigs looking for a forever home, I'm there. Add in live music, vendors, food trucks, and craft breweries and really, is there any more delightful place to be?

'Dogtoberfest' returns on Saturday, October 19 from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m., but this year at a new location: The Square in downtown Tyler. You're invited to join in the fun at this family friendly celebration, featuring many wonderful local animal rescues and shelters. The ultimate goal of the day: Finding forever homes for as many homeless pets as possible, while giving the community a truly memorable and fun experience.

On top of that, we'll be out there, too! We would love to see you! If you're ready for even more information, learn more at https://spcaeasttx.com/dogtoberfest-2019/!
