Animal lovers to march for the sake of mutts Aug. 9

Posted

WEST BRANCH — The Ogemaw County Humane Society’s Mutt March fundraiser is coming a little earlier this year and taking place at a new location.

This year the event will be held Friday, Aug. 9, at the Tolfree Wellness Park, as opposed to last year’s date in September and location in Irons Park.

For a $35 fee, owners and their canines can march in the event and participate in various contests. Contest categories include best dog costume, smallest and biggest dog, cutest and homeliest dog and more. Those who do not have a dog can walk with an adoptable dog from the shelter or bring a photo of a past pet to walk in memory of them.

The event will also feature a blessing of the pets, a silent auction, refreshments and luminaries.

Those who raise a certain amount of donations will earn prizes.

The event will take place from 5-8 p.m. For more information, call the humane society at 989-343-7387.
