MUTT IRELAND DATES, CATAGORIES AND BENEFICIARIES ANNNOUNCED

The national contest to search for Ireland’s Mr./Miss Mutt based on Fox TV’s Miss Dog America will be the biggest canine competition ever held in Ireland.

The purpose of the Nationwide event is to raise awareness regarding animal welfare issues and to raise badly needed funds for 22 animal shelters all over the country. The final will be a star studded event with the finalists arriving in limos wearing their sashes!
Promoter Alisa Rose said “I really hope this is going to be huge and I think it will if preliminary research is anything to go by, we’ve had huge interest.
