Hundreds of dogs to take to the streets of downtown Waynesville

The Downtown Waynesville Dog Walk will start at 10 a.m. on Saturday, August 6, at the Haywood County Courthouse, and parade down the street.

Categories in a dog contest include best tail wagger, best dressed, most talented and best owner/dog lookalike.

The walk is a fundraiser hosted by Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation.

Teams who raise the most in donations win prizes. Last year, The Bracers won 1st place with The Thundering Herd in 2nd place, who used their website as a collection point for pledges and donations.

Pre-registration will be held Thursday and Friday, August 4th and 5th from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. at Sarge’s Adoption Center located in the Waynesville Industrial Park near Lowe’s and Junaluska Animal Hospital. Registration fee is $15 per person, children under 10 are free. Sign-up for walkers who have not pre-registered will begin at 9 a.m. the day of.
