With the warm weather winding down, canine caretakers can take in the second annual Stettler Dog Days of Summer this Saturday at West Stettler Park.

“This is an outdoor event to celebrate dogs and pets in the Stettler area and to promote responsible pet ownership,” said Kevin Duval, Town of Stettler municipal enforcement officer with Alberta Animal Services.

The group co-hosts the event with Animal Haven Rescue.

“We are excited to have this event take place once again and we hope to see even more people and doges this year,” Duval said.

A barbecue, guest speakers, a micro-chip clinic, raffles, prizes for best-dressed dogs and best tricks are featured at the event.

All donations and funds are pegged to support spay and neuter programs with the sponsors.
