Pioneer Museum, October 9, 2010

The animal-lovers of Colorado Springs were out in full force last Saturday, October 9th, enjoying a sunny day with their dogs at the 2nd Annual PawtoberFest 5k, which benefited the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region.  The event was an enormous success, raising $85,000 (net) for the over 23,000 animals in need that the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region takes in annually.

PawtoberFest began with a 5k fun run and walk at America the Beautiful Park and finished with a ‘whole new breed of dog festival’ at Alamo Square Park.  Event attendees were treated to a family friendly event that included kids activities, dog costume and kissing contests and many of the Springs' most pet friendly companies.

“We had hoped to increase this 2nd year event by doubling it," says the President & CEO Jan McHugh-Smith.  “At the end of the day, due to incredible community support, we increased this event 10 fold.  We are delighted and appreciate all those who helped us raise even more money by collecting pledges from their family and friends to benefit homeless and abused animals."
