Perfect Pooch of Portage Photo Contest

We are searching for the perfect pooch in the county and your dog might just be the one! The PERFECT POOCH OF PORTAGE PHOTO CONTEST is open to anyone who would like to enter their dog to compete for the coveted title of "Perfect Pooch of Portage" for 2019.

If voted the PERFECT POOCH OF PORTAGE, your dog will be featured on the label of a special Thirsty Dog Brewing Co. beer called Man's Best Friend. You will get to be part of the "brew crew" for this beer as well as have a tour and tasting of Thirsty Dog Brewing Co. Also, your dog will be featured on a local billboard showing just how perfect your pooch is.


So why are we really doing this?
This is a fundraising event for Tails and Trails. The Portage Park District Foundation and the Madonio Family Animal Welfare Trust believe that by combining forces and creating one fun fundraiser, both our organizations can benefit.

The Madonio Family Animal Welfare Trust supports many local animal groups, provides food for the pets of individuals who receive Meals in Motion, and works with local veterinarians to support the care of pets who require emergency services.

The Portage Park District Foundation supports our park district by raising funds. Our goal is to begin a fund for trail development and maintenance so more people and their dogs can enjoy our parks.
