Southeast German Shepherd Rescue is also participating in the 2nd annual Canine Carnival in Chesterfield, VA. Several of their dogs will be there to greet you. The event will offer games, activities and treats for people and dogs.
Dog owners are invited to enter their pups in a Halloween costume contest. Judging will occur during three sessions (one entry per canine.) There will be music, food, pet-product vendors, rescue groups, and many dogs available for adoption.
The Chesterfield County Animal Shelter, the Chesterfield County Humane Society, the Richmond Animal League, and other local animal-rescue groups will bring plenty of adoptable dogs that are in need of a home. The CEA is also donating to the county animal shelter with proceeds from the carnival.
Mark your calendars for this event at the county fairgrounds, 10300 Courthouse Road. Admission is $5 per person, and children 12 and younger are admitted free. For details or questions, please call 804-768-7550.
