Area fundraisers take creative approaches to saving animals’ lives

Good-looking canines will have ample opportunities for public appearances this spring during two doggy-focused animal fund-raisers.

The Pets & People Alliance, with assistance from the Pasadena Poodle Patch, will present its Spring into Pet Adoption & Dog Parade Saturday, March 19, at Pasadena Animal Control and Adoption, 5150 Burke Road in Pasadena.

A couple of weeks later, the La Porte Parks & Recreation Department will present the annual Best Dog Gone Dog Contest at 5 Points Town Plaza, 100 Broadway in La Porte.

Both events will support their respective community’s shelter.

The Best Dog Gone Dog Contest, set for 9-11 a.m., presents awards in several categories. Owners will be required to bring proof of vaccinations for their pets.
