NISD: Byron Nelson hosting Puppyfest on May 12 to support Guide Dogs for the Blind
Byron Nelson High School will host Puppyfest on Saturday, May 12, to support the school’s Guide Dogs for the Blind program, which trains puppies into guide dogs for those with visual impairments.
The event begins at 8 a.m. and includes a fun run, puppy pageant, pet adoptions, vaccination clinic, puppy baths, vendors and a silent auction. Registration for the fun run – which includes both dogs and people – will begin at 8 a.m., while the race itself begins at 9 a.m. For those interested in pet adoptions, the Human Society of North Texas and Trophy Club Animals will be on hand to manage the process. HSNT is the oldest humane society in the state, while TCA is a local organization that supports lost and found pets, re-homing and stray animal adoptions.
Attendees can take part in the race for $10 per person and $5 per dog, while the pageant is $5 per dog. Pageant categories include best dressed, most talented, cutest and ugliest, best puppy/human costume and puppy look-alike.
