The area is supported by a handful of doggo organizations, agencies, associations, and groups. One of the most popular, the Humane Society of Pasco County, is a huge organization that has been active since 1982. Pups and kittens can expect unlimited stays at this organization as this is a no-kill, humane shelter.
Another big organization in the area is the SPCA of West Pasco, also called the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. This establishment has been saving lives since 1964, and it's estimated that thousands of pups and kittens have been spared and rescued under their care. The dedicated staff here make sure that pups have access to vet care, tons of attention, clean food, a place to sleep, and lots of love. This organization specializes in pooches that have run out of time at other shelters, saving them from euthanasia.
The free event is hosted by Paw Wash Plus Inc. as an effort to raise money for local, non-profit rescue groups.
Prizes are available for the fastest dog (attached to a person), most festive canine, and special age-group awards.
Don't miss out on this event, and hang around after for Barktoberfest!
