We encourage you to bring your dog, after all this is what Pawsfest is all about, but we do ask that you use good judgment by making sure your dog gets along well with other dogs and is well behaved. Please have them on a short leash (4'-6'), take them to the designated "Potty Area" and clean up behind them. We will have a common "Watering Hole" by the fountain on the Square. If your dog becomes problematic, please remove them from the Square or take them to the "Chill Out" area, we want to have a safe. fun, peaceful event. Please feel free to bring a lawn chair.
PET PAGEANT: This is a blast, plan to bring your dog and walk the runway, everyone is a winner and this is a crowd favorite! You can find the rules & registration forms here on this website, print them out and mail your registration and money to our P. O. Box or bring it with you and register at the event. Your registration for the pageant includes your entry in the Pet Parade, both for one price. Go glitz or go natural, your choice, but when you fill out the registration, be very creative with your description, this is what will be read out as you walk the runway, it should be @ 2-3 minutes long.
PET PARADE: Only $5.00 to walk your dog in the Pet Parade around the Square. If you enter the Pet Pageant, you are automatically entered in the Parade.
VENDORS: We will have vendors set up to promote their products, many are very cool pet oriented products and many are just very cool! We will also have vendors who will provide useful information to educate you and to inform you of services they provide. Most of the vendors will have drawings with great prizes so make sure you visit each and every one of them!

I am a dog. I am a living, breathing animal. I feel pain, joy, love, fear and pleasure.
I am not a thing. If I am hit - I will bruise, I will bleed, I will break. I will feel pain. I am not a thing.
I am a dog. I enjoy playtime, walk time, but more than anything, I enjoy time with my pack - my family - my people. I want nothing more than to be by the side of my human. I want to sleep where you sleep and walk where you walk. I am a dog and I feel love...I crave companionship.
We are so pleased with our website which was designed by Webbering DDH of Headland. Luke Douglas, Website Consultant, created and designed it for us gratis. He continues to tweak the site and suggest things to us that will make it more attractive and user friendly. The site has been a tremendous help in promoting our mission and getting us the exposure that we need. Luke is also responsible for designing our logo.
UPDATE: In April 2014, Luke redesigned our site to be responsive for all devices whether computer desktop, tablets or smart phones! Thanks Luke!

God, please send me somebody who'll care!
I'm tired of running, I'm sick with despair.
My body is aching, it's so racked with pain,
and dear God I pray, as I run in the rain.
That someone will love me and give me a home,
a warm cozy bed and a big juicy bone.
My last owner tied me all day in the yard
Sometimes with no water, and god that was hard.
So I chewed my leash, and God I ran away.
To rummage in garbage and live as a stray.
But now God, I'm tired and hungry and cold,
and I'm so afraid that I'll never grow old.
