The annual Dog Jog fundraiser for the Watauga Humane Society, sponsored by SNIPS*, will take place on Saturday, September 7th, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., at Brookshire Park in Boone.

The registration fee is $15 per dog through September 1st and $20 thereafter, including on-site registration the day of the event.

A special $10 registration fee for students is good through Sept. 7th.

In addition to the main event, Dr. Susan Mast, of Mast Mobile Pet Care and Acupuncture, will offer a $25 rabies clinic.

Local vendors, including The Pet Place, Pet Supplies Plus, and Mountain Dog will be on site with tons of cool things, just for the event.

There will be contests for the smallest dog, largest dog, best behaved dog, cutest dog, best retriever, and best dog trick, with prizes in each category, including a tee shirt that says,"If I can't take my dog, I'm not going."

And, of course, there will be refreshments for all creatures.
