A second annual PAWTOBERFEST to benefit the Wolcott Dog Pound’s medical fund will be held all day and evening Saturday. Last year organizers raised almost $9,000 which benefits the no-kill shelter. Several other animal rescue groups will also benefit.

The event to be held at Johnny B’s Bar and Grill on Meriden Rd. will include live music, beer, prizes for only $10 will start at 1 pm and continue until the bar closes after midnight.

Attendees are welcome to bring donations for the rescue and shelter groups as well. Some suggestions include leashes, harnesses, collars, blankets and towels.

The event is dedicated in memory of Susan L. DePinto who dedicated her life to saving abused, misunderstood and homeless animals.

Organizations benefiting from the event also include Spotty Dog Rescue, HOPE Spay/Neuter Clinic and Project Precious Rescue Inc.

More information can be found at the Pawtoberfest Facebook page.
