The Animal Foundation’s 11th Annual Best in Show
The biggest difference between The Animal Foundation’s Best in Show and a traditional dog show: the breed doesn’t matter. Instead, this show celebrates 50 unique shelter dogs of various types, focusing on their individual traits rather than bloodlines that lead back to the first canine monarchy. As the pups display their one-of-a-kind personalities, the audience applauds for their favorites. And the furry participants receive one more treat after their final bow—they’re all up for adoption.
The Animal Foundation
The smile on a once-forlorn animal’s face when it’s united with new owners can’t be matched, as the staff of The Animal Foundation knows well. What was once a tiny spay and neuter clinic when it opened in 1978 has grown into an 8-acre campus that shelters and cares for animals without a home. After a careful vetting process, families seeking four-legged companionship can find it here, relieving Dad from his duties of crawling around the house all day. The clinic still takes a stand against pet overpopulation by offering low-cost spay and neutering services, as well as vaccinations to prevent rabies and other diseases. To help animals find forever-homes, the Foundation offers pet adoptions and frequent adoption events.
