Help us meet our $10,000 fundraising goal! 
 
***SPECIAL FUNDRAISING PRIZE THROUGH SEPTEMBER 19th:  Thanks to a very kind donor, we are raffling a ride for two on the Goodyear Blimp to encourage everyone to help us reach our goal of raising $10,000 for shelter pets.  

When you register for Dogtoberfest by Thursday, September 19 at midnight and raise at least $500 for shelter pets, you will be entered into a raffle to win the ride.  If you've already registered, you will also be eligible for the raffle when you raise $500 or more. 

 
The winner will be called on Friday, September 20 and the ride will take place on Wednesday, September 25 at 11:00 a.m. and launch from Gardena, California.  This is a unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity so don't hesitate to register, raise funds, and make a difference for shelter pets!  See the Goodyear Blimp Passenger Guide.
