'Every dog has his day' at Snout by Snoutwest

Here's a little news from my area.  Austin is well known as an animal-friendly place, but now the city is getting into the rescue business.  I just love when things like this happen, don't you?

Snout by Snoutwest featured contests, a doggy water park, free K9 snacks and pet services, all for man's best friend.All the proceeds from Snout by Snoutwest went to the Town Lake Animal Shelter and the Austin Humane Society. The event took place at the Dell Jewish Community Campus in northwest Austin.
There was even a contest to see who looked the most like their pet.
Those who didn't have a puppy to spoil could find one there. Several rescue groups brought out some pooches that were looking for permanent homes.
"We hope that some people will go home with a new dog, a new family friend and adopt a dog. But we also hope they will learn something about pets--how to care for them, how to advocate for pets, and dogs. And also get familiar with our campus as a resource for the general community," Shelly Prant, with the Dell Jewish Community Center, said.
