On Friday July 19, registrations to the contest La Mascota del Año Cinema Like 2019 (Pet of the Year Cinema Like 2019) begin. The cost is 50 pesos per dog, and the participation of approximately 500 dogs is expected.
It should be noted that all proceeds will be donated to the associations “Huellitas de amor” and “Adopta”.
This event is carried out with the objective of raising awareness among people about the care of dogs, in addition to seeking coexistence between canines of different breeds.
Organizer Alex Cauich said that people who register their pet in addition to supporting this two altruistic associations, can have the opportunity of obtaining free movie tickets.
“For each peso collected from registrations, the Dog Hunter Veterinary Hospital will donate another peso to support the rescue work by these two associations, since there are many stranded animals roaming the streets of Mérida, with serious health problems,” he said.
The winner will receive 2,000 pesos in dog products and a training course at the Wow Pets Mid school, Canine Training of Yucatan A.C.
In addition, the winners can become the image of a dog-product brand and participate in the shooting of a video.
Registrations start at The Harbor Mall, on Friday July 19 at 6 pm, where the pets will be able to hang out with other dogs and dog owners.
The registrations will conclude on August 19, to begin with the first stage of three. People will vote via Facebook, where they can “like” their favorite dog and 50 pets will go to the second stage of the contest.
The second stage will take place in the month of October, and the animals will be disguised because the theme will be Halloween.
In this phase 40 participants will be eliminated to give way to the 10 finalists, who will participate in a catwalk in which their owners will dress them up in their best gala, so they can win the heart of the jury and the assistants with their sympathy and grace.
