ARF’s Outrageous Dog Show 2010!Posted by Chris Beavers on Sunday, September 19th, 2010 @ 9:59 am.
FAIRFIELD—Just a snapshot of one of the entrants in the Outrageous Dog Show, a very popular event held annually at the Fairfield Fall Fun Fest (THE social event of the year in Fairfield, btw). The dog show is sponsored by Animals Requesting Friends (ARF) in Wayne County, who provides vouchers for pet owners who wish to spay or neuter their pets, and by Southern Illinois Primary Care Associates (SIPCA).
This little scarecrow guy is Andrew Tennis of Bellmont and his chihuahua, Comet, took top prize in the “Best Dog/Guardian Lookalike” portion of the competition. There were lots of other competitions, such as Best Tail-Wagger, Best Handshake, Ugliest dog, Best Rescue Story, etc.
We’ve got the winners in all categories, and will be bringing them to you in the print version, on stands Oct. 20!
And, while you’re at it, check out ARF at http://www.arfcares.org/ for the spay/neuter vouchers and other details about the group, who are doing awesome work in the region. We had an influx of feral cats two years ago during harvest season, and as a result, three litters of kittens. Using ARF’s vouchers, we were able to afford to have ALL the kittens spayed, putting a stop to the “littering” and creating happier outdoor cats. And of course our indoor cats are all fixed, courtesy ARF’s vouchers; we even have one ‘rescue’ cat from almost 13 years ago who is here by the grace of the fine animal shelter in Fairfield, and the efforts of ARF to support finding homes for shelter animals in the area.
