Mutts in spotlight at Greater Victoria SPCA fundraiser

Bring down your special pooch for a chance to win prizes and help the cause

Think dog shows are strictly for purebred animals?

For the third annual Best in Show: The Dog Show for Mutts, happening Saturday (June 2) at the Delta Ocean Pointe Hotel, dog owners are invited to bring down their pooches for a chance to win in a variety of unique categories.

Winners will be named for best dressed, looks most like owner, best trick, most distinguishing feature, cutest male and female dogs and most original hair.

All registration fees ($20 per event, tax receipts provided) from the show go to the Greater Victoria SPCA. Sign up time is 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., with showtime at 1 p.m. The Ocean Pointe is at 45 Songhees Rd.
