Mutt Strut in Genelle

Dogs of all shapes and sizes are welcome to come out and strut for the title of Kootenay’s Cutest.

HEART dog rescue is celebrating its second year in existence with its Mutt Strut fundraiser on May 4 at Birchbank picnic grounds.

Dogs of all shapes and sizes are welcome to come out and strut for the title of Kootenay’s Cutest. The ever-popular obedience and fetching competitions are back this year as well.

HEART Rescue relies on donations and foster homes to keep its operation afloat. In two years they have saved 86 dogs from neglectful or life-threatening situations and adopted them to loving families in the Kootenays and beyond. Funds are always needed for transport, veterinary bills, food and supplies.

Pulsar is sponsoring the event and giving away a half-year supply of grain-free food to two category winners. Community and local business support has been amazing, as a result, we have some fantastic prizes all around. The highly-sought-after DNA My Dog test kit is up for grabs as a door prize again this year.

The Strut is a family-friendly event so please bring the whole crew. The entry donation for the show is $10, plus $5 for individual competitions. Registration forms can be found at Tails Pet Supply in Rossland, Total Pet in Castlegar and Barks n Rec in Trail.

  • Registration at the event will begin at 10 a.m., the show will start at 11 a.m.
