Dogs compete to benefit cancer
More than 50 dogs are expected to participate Aug. 25 in the games and contests of the Montgomery County’s Relay for Life’s third-annual “Bark for Life,” in an effort to raise funds for the American Cancer Society.
The event will take place started at 5:30 p.m. at the Radford Fraternal Order of Police building on Pulaski Avenue in Radford and will include a dog-owner look-a-like contest, a sit, fetch, and speak relay, and a timed bobbing for hot dogs contest, the “weenie dive.”
Awards will also be given for best dressed dog, the best dog dancer, and the best dog kisser, while the Salem-based band “Goova Scape” will be there to entertain their two-legged companions.
Media Chair of Montgomery County Relay for Life Committee Sarah Crowder said a variety of dog-related objects will also be available for purchase, including rabies shots for $12.50, with $2.50 being donated to the cause.
There will also be a K-9 Unit show courtesy of the Radford Fraternal Order of Police.
The event is $15 dollars per dog, which includes a gift bag of toys and information about local, dog-related services, and is free for humans.
