      Sarge's 14th Annual Dog Walk

      Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation will hold its 14th Annual Downtown Dog Walk at 9 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, in downtown Waynesville. The fundraiser supports the homeless dogs and cats of Haywood County — and is a much-loved community event, bringing hundreds of dogs and their families to Waynesville’s Main Street.
      The start time is at 9 a.m. Aug. 3, to try to beat the heat.
      The Downtown Dog Walk scene is a wonderful blend of tail wagging and smiles, as dogs and their humans congregate on the courthouse lawn.
      “Sarge’s Annual Dog Walk is a great opportunity for us all to celebrate our canine friends,” said Fred Strohm, Sarge’s administrator. “It’s a wonderful thing to see so many people both passionate about the cause and enjoying the company of dogs."
      Participants may pre-register online at www.sargeanimals.org or pick up a form at Sarge’s Adoption Center, The Dog House or Smoky Mountain Dog Bakery, all in Waynesville. Day-of-event registrations begin at 8 a.m. at the courthouse lawn.
      “This event is not only a fun time for all — it gives the community an opportunity to be a part of helping with the animals’ medical costs, supplies, food, boarding and fostering,” said Felisha Yon, Sarge’s board member and Dog Walk co-chair. “Join us in celebrating the 10,000 animals Sarge’s has saved during its 13-year history.”
      The walk begins and ends at the Historic Haywood County Courthouse on Waynesville’s Main Street. After the walk, there will be contests, with guest judges 99.9 KISS Country personalities Eddie Foxx and Sharon Green. See dogs compete in dog/owner look-a-like, best-dressed dog, best dog trick and best tail-wagging dog.
      Attendees will want to visit the pet-related vendor tables before and after the walk.
      This year, Sarge’s is offering a simplified pricing structure. For $30 per person, attendees receive admission to the Dog Walk, admission for as many dogs as you want to walk, one T-shirt, a goodie bag provided by sponsors, and an event bandanna for your pup.
      The official 2019 Downtown Dog Walk T-shirt will be available for $15 for adults and $10 for children. The T-shirts will also be on sale at pre-registration and at the Dog Walk.
      “If you can’t join us that day, or don’t have a dog to walk, you can still help,” Yon said. “Sign up to be a virtual walker. Sponsor a Sarge’s foster dog for $15 and a volunteer will walk a foster dog for you. What a treat for a foster dog to be able to join the fun. He or she might even find their new home.”
      Sarge’s Animal Rescue Foundation is at 256 Industrial Park Dr., Waynesville. Visit www.sargeanimals.org, ‘Like’ Sarge’s Facebook page or call 828-246-9050.
