Dog Easter hunt set for Saturday


— Dogs will have their chance to sniff for Easter eggs at the fifth annual Doggie Easter Egg Hunt, 1 to 5 p.m. April 19 at the Canebrake, east of Wagoner.

Registration is $10 per dog and starts at 2 p.m.

The hunt will be presented by the Oklahoma Alliance for Animals, the Canebrake and animal welfare groups from across northeastern Oklahoma.

Contests will be held for the best bunny costume, best “rocker” costume and best trick. The hunt begins at 4 p.m.

Area pet-related businesses will be on hand to talk with pet owners about how they can be of service. The Oklahoma Alliance For Animals will offer $5 pet ID tags and $20 micro-chipping. All proceeds benefit OAA and its programs to overcome pet overpopulation.

The hunt also will feature food, prizes and the opportunity to adopt homeless pets.
