Orange County Animal Services will host the 10th Annual Barktoberfest later this month, when the fun and free event returns to Lake Eola Park, N Eola Ave, Orlando, on Sunday, October 29, 2023 from 12 pm - 4 pm!

Barktoberfest is the shelter’s rescue appreciation event that serves to celebrate the partnership between OCAS and the rescue community. Animal Services currently works with more than 80 rescue groups across the state that aid in the recovery and adoption of homeless animals. Many of these pets will be present at Barktoberfest and available for adoption through the individual rescue groups.

Pet Adoption

Dozens of available animals will be onsite, in the care of the shelter’s rescue groups. This includes puppies, adult dogs, specific breeds and mixed breeds. With a wide variety of options, there will be a pet for each interested adopter available! Adoption prices and policies vary by group.

Rabies Vaccinations and Microchipping

OCAS will also be offering free Rabies Vaccinations and Microchipping!

Event Vendors

Barktoberfest will feature local pet-related businesses and groups! If you’re interested in joining OCAS for Barktoberfest, please email to receive a vendor application.

Animal Services is asking participating vendors to donate $250 to the shelter.
