Hundreds of dogs and their families took to the Dana Point Harbor on Saturday morning for the 20th annual Wag-a-thon benefiting the Pet Project Foundation.
In a show of support for those less fortunate, canines strutted their stuff in the event’s costume contest and showed off their unique skills in a competition of tricks. Some, like Charlie, a 5-year-old pit bull donning bumblebee attire for the day, were once shelter or rescue dogs themselves. But when he was a pup, Charlie found a home with Nick Bruno, a Dana Point resident.
Proceeds from the day go to support the Pet Project Foundation and San Clemente-Dana Point Animal Shelter’s partnership, aimed at providing care to lost or abandoned animals in the two cities. For more information, visit www.petprojectfoundation.org.
