Howl-O-ween Costume Contest & Adoption Fair

  • Cerebrus Brewing Company 702 W Colorado Avenue Colorado Springs, CO 80905 United States (map)

We have been invited to participate in the 3rd Annual Howl-O-Ween Costume Contest & Adoption Fair at Cerebrus Brewing Company.

Bring your pup dressed in their best Howl-O-Ween costume for a chance to win a $100 Cerberus Gift Card! 

The third batch of Buddy Up Pale Ale will be tapped, accompanied by an adoption fair and dog Halloween costume contest! Bring your pup dressed up or adopt a dog and dress them up on the spot!

$1 from each glass of Buddy Up sold will be donated to two of shelters (TBD) to support their mission. 

Cerebrus mission with the Buddy Up program is:
• Support local No Kill Animal Shelters.
• Work to end euthanization of shelter pets due to the lack of a home.
• Promote temporary fostering to help rehabilitate dogs and give them a place to be loved in preparation for their forever homes, and permanent adoption of rescue dogs.
• Educate the public about the realities of the commercial dog breeding industry (puppy mills) and the commodification of pets.

This program is named after Buddy, a pit bull mix that was adopted at the Pikes Peak Humane Society in 2000 by two of the owners of Cerberus. After contracting cancer, Buddy was euthanized at the Colorado Avenue Animal Hospital in 2005, in the building that Cerberus now inhabits. Buddy had many behavioral challenges after being adopted but within a couple years and after lots of love, Buddy became a well adjusted, well-behaved companion. We honor Buddy with this program in the hope that many other dogs can find a solid forever home and all the love they can handle.
