Teams are Top Dog at Pawtoberfest!

Create a team of 4 or more members and receive VIP treatment at Pawtoberfest, team “sWAG-bags” for your team members, and a team photo at our photo booth!

Pawtoberfest is less than two weeks away, and if you are looking to be top dog at this year’s event, here’s how you do it! We are offering registrants the chance to create teams of four or more people. You can fundraise a little extra to help out HSPPR, have fun with your teammates at the event, and even get to take a professional picture at the festival – all while getting extra goodies and sWAG along the way.

Lisa Braun, veterinary technician at HSPPR, has been her team’s captain for four years now. Every year, she encourages her fellow veterinary clinic staff members and their families to join her team and fundraise on behalf of HSPPR!

“I love where I work,” said Lisa. “We do amazing things for animals every day, and I know the money is going to a great cause.”

Her team, which comprises 16 people this year, is actively raising money for HSPPR by spreading the word daily about the amazing things done in our veterinary clinic and shelter to help each and every animal that comes through our doors.

In the past, Lisa and her teammates have held events where the community could donate on behalf of her team as well. They’ve held karaoke nights and drinking nights at local bars where all of the proceeds went directly into her team’s fundraising page and then right back to the homeless pets she helps each and every day.

“It’s so much fun,” Lisa said. “All of us love going out after work anyway, and this gives us a reason to get together and tell other people about the amazing work we do. We’re loud, so lots of people hear us and help us spread the word!”

And every year, Lisa and her team attend Pawtoberfest together with all their own furry friends.

“Pawtoberfest is a great event,” said Lisa. “My favorite part is the chance to spend the day having fun with my friends. And of course seeing all the HSPPR alumni turn up for the event!”
