The group, One Dog At A Time, said in a release that the event will start with a dog agility demonstration orchestrated by Heidi Suarez Rivera. Dog owners can then enter their dogs to see of they can do the same activities, and there will be a prizes for first and second place in the novice category.

The dog show, for which owners can enter their pooch for an entry fee, will also include various classes such as best rescue, best toy, best trick and best puppy. There will be certificates for top three places and a prize and rosette for the winners, the organisation said in a release.

Rescued dog Orbit with Caroline Johnston on his release from the pound

Encouraging all animal lovers to attend, ODAAT Vice President Caroline Johnston suggested, “If you don’t have your own dog to bring, borrow one from the Humane Society. The dogs will love a day out, they can be pampered at our Doggy Hair Salon and they might find their forever homes; which has happened before at our events.”

President Paula Blane said, “Last year we saved 170 dogs and it was all down to the support and generosity of the community here. This year, we are beginning to raise funds to open our own store and premises to house even more rescued dogs before they are adopted. I urge the public to give us a call or FB us if they find a stray. If they are taken to the Pound, which happened to many over the Christmas break, the dogs will be euthanized if not claimed.”

The show will be held between 1pm and 4pm at Cayman Spirits Company on Bronze Road, North Sound Road, George Town. The organisation noted that parking will be limited as the event is based in the rear car park, so visitors may have to park safely on side roads and walk down.

Entry forms will be available from Cayman Animal Hospital, Crewe Road, or at the event on the day.
