Furry friends given prizes

Augusta Margaret River Times - - Front Page -

Pets and their proud young own­ers were out in force at the 89th Mar­garet River Agri­cul­tural Show last Fri­day for the sixth an­nual Mar­garet River Chil­dren’s Pet Show, hosted by Cape Crea­tures Vet­eri­nary Hos­pi­tal.

Much time was put into spruc­ing up the pets and or­gan­is­ers said there was a lot of ex­cite­ment sur­round­ing the event.

“The chil­dren’s faces as they re­ceived their prizes was so lovely to watch,” a team mem­ber said. “Of course, we didn’t want any­one to go home home empty handed, so we had plenty of sweets and con­so­la­tion prizes for the chil­dren and even doggie treats for our four-legged friends.”

Pro­ceeds from the $1 en­try fee went to FAWNA to help care for na­tive wildlife.

Ava Mur­phy, 9, with Milo, who won best res­cue and came sec­ond in the wag­gi­est rear-end cat­e­gory.

Sis­ters In­grid, 8, and Olivia, 10, with Kumba the Rab­bit, who placed first in most-alike pet and owner.
