SULLIVAN, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — There is a new way for people in Sullivan County to support the humane society.

The Barktoberfest on Saturday was plenty of fun for those on hand as the festival included a cornhole tournament, many food trucks and live music. It also included taste testing from both Terre Haute Brewing Company and Meyer Winery.

The purpose of this event was to try and have a fun and creative way to support and raise funds for this organization.

Julie Tow is the president of the board for the Sullivan County Humane Society, and she says this event is all about getting the community involved.

“It is getting the community out. To come and bring your dogs, I know that dog over there was adopted from our shelter and bring your family here. It’s just good to get out and do things in the community to help support people that are in the community,” said Tow.

Tow wanted to express her gratitude for the continued support of the Sullivan community.

“It is just awesome that we are able to have an event of this magnitude to be able to support the shelter. These are the things that are going to get the word out for people to come and adopt the animals we have that are in need of owners,” added Tow.
