Leash up your favorite pup and support a wonderful cause! Please join Sarge's Animal Rescue Foundation at the Haywood County Courthouse the 18th annual Downtown Dog Walk. Note the new date, September 23rd, where you and your dog can benefit from some cooler weather.

Sarge's is pleased to welcome back 99.9 KISS Country’s Eddie and Amanda Foxx as grand marshals and contest judges. Local favorite MC Jeanne Naber will host the event. Contests will include Best Trick, Best Tail Wag, and Best Costume, so come prepared to show off and bring home the gold (or a squeaky toy)!

Pre-registration for walkers and their dogs will take place September 21 and 22, 12-6pm at Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation, 256B Industrial Park Dr. Waynesville. On-site registration will take place at the Courthouse immediately before the parade kickoff, September 23 at 9am. The walk starts promptly at 10am, so come early if you need to register!

Can't get enough of the limited event t-shirts? Additional shirts can be purchased for $20. Registration and t-shirts sales go directly to Sarge's, which has saved 11,500 animals and counting!

As always, lots of paw-tastic vendors will be present, making this a true party!
