Watch out AKC! The Animal Foundation’s 11th Annual Best in Show is coming to The Orleans on Sunday April 27th, 2014. Over 50 dogs will compete for the coveted title, but everyone will be a winner. After the show, these furry contestants will be available for adoption.
Doors open at noon for the Concourse Fair presented by Hills Science Diet. Attendees can enjoy Comedy in Action star Jeff Civillico and local celebrities, take part in a silent auction, and much more. The competition will begin at 1 PM when the pups take the stage to wow attendees.
Best in Show contestants are currently being lavished with cuddles and treats by dedicated volunteer fosters and will be available for adoption via a random drawing process after the show. If you are looking to take home a new furry family member, please sign up with an Adoption Concierge Representative, by smart phone or by text when you arrive. One lucky attendee will win Pick of the Litter – an opportunity to choose their fuzzy friend before the general adoption begins. A 10 minute Meet and Greet session will follow and then the random drawing will begin. Remember, winners will still have to pass a screening process to ensure they will be a good puppy parent before they take home their 4 legged child.
Tickets for The Animal Foundation Best in Show are on sale now through their website and proceeds from the event will benefit lost, unwanted and abandoned shelter pets. Please come celebrate the beauty of shelter dogs and cheer these cute contestants on as they strut their way to a forever family.
