Humane Society of Elbert County to Host Doggone Beauty Pageant

October 2, 2012

The Humane Society of Elbert County will be hosting a beauty pageant on October 13th.

This beauty pageant might not be what you would expect. Instead of people being judged, dogs will participate in their stead.

Elbert Theatre Director, Toni King, says the Humane Society is raising awareness about their mission.

“They are trying to raise money for all of the things they do in the community. They are also trying to promote the awareness that is going on with animals and the new ordinances in the city. Those are the main goals of this event, to make sure people know what is going on, and that we are here”, said King.

The pageant will be held at Sutton Park between Brookehaven Circle and Forest Hills Road. Entry fee for owners wanting to enter their dogs will be fifteen dollars before October 13th and eighteen dollars the day of the pageant.

King said that the pageant will be more relaxed compared to usual dog shows.

“So, this should be an event that is a lot of fun. It won’t be anything like the Kennel Club dog shows you see on television. It will not be as serious as that”, said King.

Admission into the Doggone Beauty Pageant will be free, but the Humane Society will be accepting donations throughout the event.
