Woofin' Paws Pet Fashion Show, April 3rd

The popular Woofin’ Paws Pet Fashion Show normally attracts over 100 entrants. An array of dogs, cats and miscellaneous creatures, obediently accompanied by their best friends, will compete for ribbons, Sat., April 3 starting 11 a.m. at Carey Stadium, 6th St. off boardwalk.

The event kicks off an array of Ocean City Easter Weekend activities. Woffin’ Paws has always been a fund raiser for the Ocean City Humane Society.

It takes on added significance this year as the Society has been working to capacity for months due to the Recession. The facility is completely filled with dogs and cats from owners who can no longer afford to care for them.

A $5 entry fee for individual pets and a $10 fee for multiple entries in Woofin’ Paws supports the Society. Spectators are admitted free but may leave a donation on site for the Society. This year it is more important that ever for spectators to make on optional contribution.

A donation jar will be placed at the Registration Table for voluntary contributions. Donations may also be made by sending a check to the Ocean City Humane Society, PO Box 1254, Ocean City, N.J. 08226.
