The Oradell Special Events Committee is once again hoisting the K-9 Karnival! Last year was such a huge success, we had to do it again.
The event will be held on Sunday, April 27, 2014 RAIN OR SHINE, at the Senior Center parking lot, 1 Veterans Place, Oradell NJ. 07649.
It is located behind the Oradell Post Office.
The event will be held between 1:00pm to 5:00pm.
The event is FREE.
We expect to have a huge crowd of our friends-on-four and their families attending the event from Oradell and the surrounding communities. They will gather to enjoy live music, human and K-9 food, games and lots of activities for all in a fun family oriented day.
We have refined the process for the "Top Dog" Competition.
The "Top Dog" competition will be comprised of four (4) categories:
Best Kisser (dog will kiss owner)
Best Trick (not to be confused with obedience!)
Cutest Puppy - (puppies up to 9 months old)
The entry fee is $5.00 per dog, per event! Ribbons will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place. The 1st place winners will compete for the title, "Top Dog"! and win a great prize.
We are also going to hold the "Parade of Dogs". Dogs will allow their owners to parade them around the ring! We will have some special prizes for some of these dogs also. PLEASE COME PREPARED! BE CREATIVE!
The participants will be judged by our “Celebrity Judges”.
We will open the event with The Top Dog Show & Parade of Dogs registration at 1:00pm followed by the Blessings of the Dogs at 1:15pm.
Next to the registration booth there will be The Rainbow Bridge table. You are invited to write your desist pets’ names on the mural.
There are also demonstrations by the Bergen County Police K-9 unit “Attack” a victim and searching for narcotics; Oradell Animal Care will inform you about the K-9 Oral Care; Oradell Animal Hospital will demonstrate how to do a CPR on your dog and more! Vendors will be on hand with their latest dog items!
You have home they have Luv! Give PAWS a chance! You will have a chance to meet & adopt a NEW friend with a tail!
There will be variety breeds of dogs (and maybe puppies) up for adoption but you will have to go through the club’s adoption process first.
Many rescue organizations will be represented so some dogs may find their "Furever" homes! Last year, many lucky dogs found new families!
