Dogs can be entered in multiple categories. Dogs must be six months of age and be up to date on their vaccinations to participate in the Fun Dog Show. Shock, prong, or choke collars are strictly prohibited at this event.
There will be hot food for sale as well as t-shirts and other merchandise, dogs for adoption from the Carroll County Animal Shelter, and information booths from many of our sponsors. This year we'll also have Santa Paws in the house. Our own fabulous Santa will be there for photo sessions with your pets.
The event is free and open to the public. It is a fun day for people of all ages. In addition to the competition, there will be shelter dogs up for adoption, information booths from sponsors, and sales of t-shirts and other merchandise. We will be selling food: hot dog and hamburger plates, snacks, and drinks.
Proceeds of the dog show will go toward supporting the CCHS Empty Pet Bowls and Fix Fido programs. Empty Pet Bowls is a “soup kitchen for animals,” providing low-income Carroll County residents with pet food. During the economic downturn of recent years, there was an increase in the number of people who had to make the difficult decision to turn their animals over to the animal shelter because they could not afford to feed them. CCHS developed EPB in order to address this problem and help keep more pets in their homes. Fix Fido is a program which subsidizes spay and neuter services at the West Georgia Spay Neuter Clinic for the pets of financially distressed Carroll County residents. Both programs are dedicated to reducing the number of homeless animals in our community.
