The Beautify CNMI Animal Welfare Committee and PAWS have set a date for the third annual Best of Worst Dog Show. PAWS WARS Episode 3: Revenge of the Boonie is set to take place on June 13. This year’s dog show will have a Star Wars theme in celebration of veteran dog show host George Hasselback’s 40th birthday.
Like years past, this year’s contestants will compete for prizes in six categories. Popular categories “Booniest,” “Fattest,” and “Most Disobedient” are returning for this year’s competition, along with new categories, “Most Talented” and “Best Star Wars Character” to go along with the theme of this year’s show. A “Best in Show” award will also be given out.
Dogs will be able to participate in multiple categories and there will be no cost to compete, although a donation to support PAWS is always encouraged.
The event is still in the planning stages and both Beautify CNMI and PAWS are looking for sponsors for Micronesia’s only annual dog show. The organizers are looking for in-kind donations of raffle items, as well as cash to pay for tents, tables, and awards.
People interested in volunteering to help with PAWS WARS are encouraged to attend a meeting next Friday, May 15 at 12:00 at Oleai Bar & Grille. Contact Angelo Villagomez at firstname.lastname@example.org or 285-6462 for more information.
