Strutt Your Mutt at Dogtown SA on Saturday 7 September
Dogtown SA is an animal rehabilitation sanctuary situated near the Hennops River, for dogs who have lost their homes or have been rescued from dire situations
The popular Strutt Your Mutt fundraising event will see animal lovers (and their rescued pets) get together for a day of fun, laughs and pup pageantry to raise money for this worthy cause.
Pageant categories will include:
- Wiggliest Bum
- Biggest Smile
- Cutest Trick
- Mr & Miss Rescue
- Dogtown SA Spring Champion
Winners will be chosen based on enthusiasm and best participation on the day, and pet owners are invited to enter their rescue animal at a small entry fee of R50 per category
The day’s activities will also include the unveiling of the first phase of Dogtown SA’s newest outdoor venue structure, made possible by Montego’s continued support and involvement with the organisation. The structure creates an outdoor space that will be used to host events, for training seminars, and for the 2019 edition of Strutt Your Mutt – all while generating income for the organisation.
The pageant competition will be judged by celebrities and Dogtown SA ambassadors Al Prodgers and Mary-Ann Barlow, as well as a final surprise judge who will be announced closer to the time.
“The 2018 Strutt Your Mutt was a huge success with over 40 rescued dogs – many of whom were ex-Dogtown residents – taking part in the various pageant categories,” says Tracy McQuarrie, founder of Dogtown SA. “We’re hoping to see many more take part in 2019, while unveiling our new structure to all present!”
Strutt Your Mutt will take place on 7 September 2019 at Dogtown SA from 10:00am to 15:00pm
