Canines Compete in the Miss AmeriPaw Pageant

Glamorous runway event Project Poochie supports Great Plains SPCA’s lifesaving mission.

Witness glammed-up canine contestants on the runway vying for the coveted “Best of Show” trophy at Project Poochie’s Miss AmeriPaw Pageant, a fundraiser for Great Plains SPCA. Supporting the SASSY (Shelter Animals + Seniors + Supportive Youth) programs, the Oct. 23 event at the National Airline History Museum includes drinks and dinner, the sure-to-be-furry-fun show, followed by dancing to One Night Stand.
