Residents at Magnolia Manor on the Coast will give helping paws to dogs in need.
The facility will host an event to benefit Bryan County Animal Control from 1-4 p.m. Saturday at 141 Timber Trail in Richmond Hill.
The event will have competitions including a canine agility obstacle course and a “face that only a mother could love” competition. Free hot dogs and drinks will be provided by Magnolia Manor, and free dog cookies will be done by PawParazzi Pet Boutique and Spa.
Dog lovers are encouraged to bring their canine companions.
In addition to the Bryan County Animal Control adoption corner, local nonprofit organizations including the Bryan County Bark Park and Bryan County Animal Care Givers will be in attendance.
The price of admission is a donation to help the Bryan County Animal Control food drive. Donation suggestions are cans of dog or puppy food, dry dog or cat food, collars, leads, treats, dental sticks or flea shampoo.
Jane Honnor, owner of PawParazzi and one of the event organizers, said, “We know how much people in Richmond Hill love animals, and we want to give back to the community by supporting such a fun event, which celebrates the fact that dogs are part of our families and which helps animals who are less fortunate.”
