Your Dog Or Cat Could Be Crowned Lake Superior Royalty
Your dog or cat could be crowned the Lake Superior Ice Festival King or Queen this month! It's all part of a fun contest that also benefits the Douglas County Humane Society. Why not enter your pet into the contest? They could be featured in the coronation on Saturday, January 29 at Barkers Island.
How The Contest Works
You need to enter online for a fee of $5 per entrant before January 20. You'll then be asked to submit up to three pictures of your pet that displays their fanciest side. You'll then have to answer some "paw-some"' questions to help the community vote for this years Canine King & Queen, and the winning Felines of the Festival.
Community Based Voting
From January 21-24 the community will vote for their favorite pet by donating $1 per vote. Funds raised through the voting process will go directly to the Humane Society of Douglas County.
One male and one female of both categories of dogs & cats will be named the winner. If your dog is named the winner it is expected for you and your dog to attend the coronation event. Cats are not expected to brave the cold, but their owners are more than welcome to attend the ceremony that takes place on Saturday, January 29 at 1:15pm at Barkers Island.
Donations Appreciated & Needed
The Humane Society of Douglas County uses donations to help fund the shelter and provide essential care to homeless, lost, and abandoned animals in Douglas County.
