Dogs To Strut Their Stuff At The WCASS’s Mutt Strut

By Staff | Sep 25, 2013

Tails are sure to be happily wagging at this year’s Mutt Strut/Pet Festival, held to be held Saturday at the Wetzel County Fairgrounds.

Have a dog that likes to “strut?” Come on out to the 12th annual WCASS, Inc. Mutt Strut.

This year’s Mutt Strut/Pet Festival will be held Saturday, Sept. 28, at the Wetzel County Fairgrounds. Registration and activities begin at 11 a.m.

Prizes will be given for most pledge money collected in the 18 and over age group: first place, Acer Iconia W3 Windows 8 Tablet; second place, $100 WalMart gift card. The 17 and younger age group prizes are: first place, Kindle Fire HD with case; second place, $100 WalMart gift card.

The Mutt Strut is one of the two biggest fund raisers held each year to help support the abused and unwanted animals in Wetzel County. Two events everyone seems to enjoy are the Dog Costume Contest and Pet/Owner look-a-like contest. Other events this year includes: Disc Jockey Carman Harman, concessions, photo booth/candid shots, Caricaturist JD Williamson, pie cook off contest/auction, fall wreath decorating contest, homemade doggie treats, pet related items for sale, doggie massages/nails painted, agility course, face painting/temporary tattoos, games, raffles, and 50/50 drawing. Another fun activity for kids (of all ages) and pets is the bubble wagon with Danny and Cathy Westfall.

This year’s walk will be held in memory of Joe Rabel, a friend/supporter of helping furry friends. Stop by a local/surrounding area business and pick up a brochure for complete details on the event.
