Does your pooch have what it takes to be “Best in Show”?
Dog guardians and all Victoria-area animal lovers are invited to the 9th Annual “Best in Show” event on Saturday, June 2 at the Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe Resort. The event, a fundraiser supporting abused, abandoned and injured animals rescued by the BC SPCA’s Victoria Branch, begins at 1 p.m., with dog registration beginning at noon.
“This is a really fun event, celebrating the amazing dogs who share our lives, with all proceeds going to help our community’s most vulnerable and at-risk animals,” says Annie Prittie Bell, manager of the Victoria SPCA.
In addition to a barbecue lunch, the event features a dog show where participants vie for titles such as Most Original Hair, Best Trick, Most Endearing Rescue Dog, Cutest Puppy, Cutest Male Dog and Cutest Female Dog. Contest entry is $20 for the first category and $10 for each additional entry. Prizes, which include hotel stays, doggie gifts and more, will be awarded to the top three participants in each category.
