Dress up your pup to celebrate our colorful community with Seattle Humane at this year’s Doggie Drag Contest on Saturday, June 23 at Family Pride located in Cal Anderson Park.

Registration is from 1-2:15 p.m. with a $10 entry fee. Contest begins at 2:30 p.m. on the main stage. All proceeds benefit Seattle Humane’s Pet Project, which provides basic veterinary care, pet food and volunteer support to low-income people living with HIV/AIDS or cancer.

“This is a fantastic service – for people like me, it puts our minds at ease, because we don’t have the exorbitant funds for vet fees,” says Russell, Pet Project client since 1995, in a press release from the organization.

The contest emcee is Seattle Times columnist Nicole Brodeur. Drag Queens Gaysha and DonnaTella Howe and friends will judge the tail-wagging contestants. Prizes awarded for the following categories:* Celebrity Impawsinator

*Rainbowriffic

*Animal Impawsinator

*Ruffest Look

*Most Furrbulous

Seattle Humane’s MaxMobile and Life-Saver Rescue vehicle will also be in the Seattle Pride Parade on Sunday, June 24.
