Friday, May 3, 2019

AIKEN, S.C. (WRDW/WAGT) -- The Friends of the Animal Shelter in Aiken County is hosting its annual Doxie Derby on Saturday at Citizens Park.

This is one of the biggest yearly fundraisers for the Aiken County Animal Shelter, and it's also one of the cutest!

The event features face painting, food and music, balloon animals, and of course all sorts of dog contests, including best trick, best costume, best kisser, and more!

But the highlight of the event? The breed races! Dogs of all shapes and sizes will be squaring off against others in their gene pool to see who the fastest pup is.

The Doxie Derby is happening Saturday from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. at Citizens Park, 1060 Banks Mill Road, in Aiken. This is a great chance to help out your local shelter in need!

All pet dogs are welcome on a leash.

We hope to see you there!
