The animals are still counting on us, so the party must go on!

Since the COVID-19 pause began, we have continued to provide shelter, care and hope for hundreds of animals.

  • Over 500 pets have found loving homes.

  • We’ve distributed over 48 tons of pet food - over 208,000 pet meals - through our Goldstein Auto Group Furry Friends Pet Food Pantry.

  • Safely-distanced versions of our services, including our spay/neuter and wellness clinics, have been added.

  • Our new Behavior and Enrichment Helpline connects families with the expertise of our staff so we can help address problems before they become a cause for relinquishment.

Pretzels anyone?

Soft pretzels, pumpkin risotto and vegetable fritters round out the delicious selection of comfort foods available for pickup at Brown's Brewing Company, 417 River Street in Troy, on the day of the event. Pair it with our featured beer and our Oktopurrfest party pack for a full celebratory experience.

about the Festmeister

The Festmeister is the ceremonial title for the one who is honored during the celebration. While this prestigious title is usually reserved exclusively for felines, extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures! This year, nominations were open to pets of all species - both past and present - through our recent Happy T'Ales Label Beer Contest.

The contest winner will be featured on specially-labeled 4-packs of Brown's Brewing's Oktoberfest lager, available exclusively for this event. The top 10 nominees from the contest will be featured during our live stream. Viewers can vote in real time to name the 2020 Festmeister honoree.
