Pet project just for the kids
A FUN and novel way to get children involved in the show, the Children’s Small Animal Pet Show, is a welcome addition to the Childers Show line-up.
It is open to primary schoolchildren, and as well as first, second and third place ribbons there are plenty of wonderful prizes up for grabs including a cash prize of $50 for best in show.
There are a wealth of categories with the major areas being dogs and cats, and others including birds, rodents, reptiles and fish.
Organisers are looking forward to seeing who has the best dressed or best tail wagger in the dogs or even the loudest purr in the cats.
For something truly novel there is even a pet and owner look-alike section in the bird, rodent, reptile and fish category.
All entries must be brought to the showgrounds on Saturday from 9–10am and be fully vaccinated.
