Now that you know about The Montreal Dachshund Association's 3rd annual Wiener Dog Race, here are a few other great pet-related charity events going on this weekend in Montreal.
The Beaconsfield Pet Fair
West Islanders are getting pet-friendly this weekend too! Beaconsfield is turning 100 and will celebrate with pets on parade! And every single one of them is a pet that's been adopted.
