Pet lovers -- and their pets, of course -- enjoyed the 20th DAWG Walk and Pet Faire hosted by the city of Mission Viejo Animal Services and Dedicated Animal Welfare Group at Village on the Green next to the Norman Murray Community Center today.
Proceeds from the dog walk benefit the homeless animals at the Mission Viejo Animal Service Center.What's a pet fair without some contests? Competitions included the Best K9 Kisser Contest, the Owner/Dog Look-Alike Contest and the Best K9 Trickster contest.
Sponsors as well as and nonprofit groups gave out goodie bags, dog treats, bowls, toys and bandanas galore. Some of the sponsors were Alicia Pet Care Center, Kahoots, Koda Pet Foods, Inc., Pet Supply Warehouse, Just Food For Dogs and Paaawz Pet Sitting…. just to mention a few.
