'Mutt Strut' set for Jan. 30
Photo by Randy Metcalf/The Explorer Beasley, an energetic 1-year-old mixed breed rescued from the Humane Society, could be one of many canines to walk away with a prize Jan. 30 during the Mutt Strut competition. The event, which starts at 2:30 p.m., is part of the Agri-Country Bluegrass Festival at the Pinal County Fairgrounds.

In celebration of the googly goblins and creepy critters of Halloween the Humane Society’s Education and Community Outreach presents “Animal Urban Legends” from 6-8:30 pm Friday, Oct. 26, at the HSSA Companions for Life Center, 3465 E. Kleindale. The program will entertainingly educate families on why dogs, cats and wild beasts have historically been perceived as unflattering antagonists.

After this one-of-a kind presentation there will be arts and crafts for kids and there will be a costume contest for kids and their furry friends.

It’s only $3 per person and FREE for members of the Humane Society’s Hand-in-Paw Kids Club. There will be refreshments and seating will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. R.S.V.P deadline is Oct. 23.

For more information or to register for the program, please contact the Humane Society’s

Community Outreach Department at (520) 321-3704, Ext. 142. Additional information is online at hssaz.org.
