Thanks for your support of DOGTOBER

Baxter, and all of us here at Sawdust City Brewing Company, would like to thank everyone for their tremendous support of Dogtober! This awesome initiative wouldn’t be possible without the incredible support of our customers, so thank you to everyone who contributed to the Dogtober fundraising efforts.

Sawdust City Brewing Company hosted a month long campaign in support of local animal charities in Muskoka and surrounding communities. Over $1200 was raised through collections, various special events, and Dogtober t-shirt proceeds. The team at Sawdust City loves hosting these events and are honoured to support the incredible local organizations that care for animals in need including, Muskoka OSPCAFinding Them Homes James Bay Pawsitive RescueMoosonee Puppy Rescue, and Carter’s Forever Rescue and Sanctuary.

We are all too aware that these charities require as much support as possible all year. As such, the brewery will remain a drop off location for supplies such as blankets, bleach, dog beds, non-perishable pet items all year and we will ensure that they get delivered to the shelters that care and love for animals in need.

Thank you Muskoka for your incredible support! We are so proud to be a part of such a caring community!

Our Dogtober initiative is inspired by Baxter & Bella, brewery owners’ Rob & Karla Engman’s beloved schnoodles.


In loving memory of Bella.
