This Saturday, September 29th from 1:00 until 4:00 p.m., mark your calendars to attend Planet Dog’s 7th Annual Woofminster Annual Dog Show and Cover Dog Challenge. Get there by 12:30 in order to register your beloved canine. The event will take place at Camp Ketcha in Scarborough, Maine.
Adult tickets cost $10 each while children and canines each cost $5; children under the age of two are FREE. You can either purchase the tickets in advance by phoning the Planet Dog Company Store at 800.381.1516. You can also purchase your tickets at the gate that day for the same price.
Dogs that are well-behaved are invited. They do not have to compete in order to attend but they must be on a standard leash at all times and be under the control of their companion. People, with or without a dog are also welcome to attend.
Planet Dog will provide dog supplies for all of the dogs that attend that day: fresh water, poop bags and dog treats galore. For the human attendees, albeit children, adults or dog lovers of any variety, plan on lots of fun activities to see and do; games, raffles, a scavenger hunt, bake sale, face painting, animal vendors to visit and agility demonstration contests to participate in.
Dogs are invited to compete in the cover dog challenge that day, too. Enzo, the winner of the cover dog challenge from 2011 can be viewed on the attached photo accompanying this article. Celebrity judges have been invited to judge the contest.
Plan to attend this great event rain or shine! The event is a Planet Dog Foundation fundraiser. It will be utilized to support dogs that help people in need!
The Planet Dog Foundation has been in existence for over a decade and funds the training, placement and support of dogs that help people in need. So far, since they came into existence, they have donated $850,000 in grants and donations of products to nationwide exemplary non-profit organizations. They have done this by donating 2% of every one of their sales of their products.
Planet Dog and the Planet Dog Foundation believes in dogs! They recognize the fact that canines make people feel good, if not good then better. They also dole out unconditional love and they care for the people in their lives. Dogs are involved in being therapy dogs in hospitals for the sick and wounded, for the elderly in care homes and help with search and rescue missions. Dogs have been given the very important job of sniffing out a drop in blood sugar, epilepsy attacks which may prove deadly and provide emotional therapy for those suffering from PTSD. And this is just the beginning!
No wonder Planet Dog and Planet Dog Foundation strives to do what they do! Help them to achieve their goals by attending Woofminster 2012.
