Wagapalooza, the Animal Care Center’s zany and anything but typical dog show, will be held on Saturday, May 21st from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Winston Wells Ball Field in Cruz Bay. This very cool event is a fundraiser for the ACC, an organization near and dear to our hearts here at News of St. John.
As in past years, classes to be judged include Best Old Timer, Best Costume, Best Adult Handler, Best Look Alike (to owner), Best Shelter Rescue, Babe Award, as well as Waga King and Queen.
Admission is free; however if you’d like to register your dog for the show, it’s $20 per class or three classes for $50 ($25 per class at the door). Children under 16 are half price, but must be accompanied by an adult.
If you are interested in entering your dog, just stop by the shelter between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. or go to www.wagapalooza.com to register. There will be registration the day of the event starting at 4:30 p.m. Judging begins at 6 p.m.
If you’re a business here on island and are interested in sponsoring the event, please contact Lucy Banks, ACC President, at [email protected]
As always, all proceeds from the event go directly to the ACC. Monies raised are used to keep the shelter open, medicate the cats and dogs, fund travel to send the animals to their “forever homes” and to purchase food for the ACC’s feeding stations which are located throughout the island and help St. John’s homeless kittens and cats.
