Running at the Bancroft Legion on Dec. 3 from 10am to 4pm, pet parents are invited to dress their dogs for both the talent show and photos with Santa. The dog show starts at 11:30 and for a $2 entry fee your pooch can compete for best costume, best trick, best at being cute or best in show. Prizes and bragging rights go out to all competitors.

From 10am to 11:30am you and your four-legged friend can enjoy a photo with Santa.

For those looking to help a great cause and do some early holiday shopping, the Kritter Kringle Raffle offers amazing prizes that have been donated by local businesses and dog rescue fans.

Each year, the Kritter Kringle Raffle and Dog show grows a bit more. The event is not only perfect for canine companions, it’s also a great time for HART volunteers and a small army of rescued dogs to celebrate and make a Christmas wish for a brighter future for dogs in need across the region.
