October for the Dane County Humane Society means "Dogtoberfest," an event that puts the spotlight squarely on mans best friend.
This year's "Dogtoberfest" was held Sunday at the Capital Brewery in Middleton.
Activities at the event included a tail wagging contest, while human visitors enjoyed the event's selection of beer, food, and music.
Organizers said the event is not only fun, but also makes a difference.
"There are a lot of animals in our community that need homes and need help and having people come out that already have pets and to show their support for those animals, it's a great way to build more support for the shelter," said Julie Lussier of Dane County Humane Society.
The proceeds from the event will benefit homeless pets in the community. Organizers said that they hoped to raise $10,000.
