RUTLAND - The Rutland County Humane Society (RCHS) is hosting its annual Duck Derby to raise money for the homeless animals in its care.
At 3 p.m. on Sunday, July 17, at the Library Fields on River Road in Killington (part of the Killington Dog Days weekend benefitting RCHS) "adopted" plastic ducks will be launched into the stream in a race to the finish. The first ducks to reach the finish line win cash prizes. There will also be a cash prize for the last duck. To adopt a duck please visit the RCHS website (www.rchsvt.org), contact the Business Office at 802-483-9171 or adopt a duck at the Killington Dog Days weekend. A single duck is $3, four ducks (a quack pack) are $10 and 6 ducks (a six-quack) are $15. Funds raised from the Duck Derby will support the programs and homeless animals at RCHS. So "adopt" a duck for the day and cheer it on as it makes its way downstream.
Three year old. Spayed Female. Boxer mix.
I'm all wiggles and I can catch a ball like nobody's business. Like all Boxers, I enjoy the company of my people and am always ready for adventure. I am nicely housetrained, know sit and love to retrieve a ball-a great way to keep me exercised. A rural home would be best for me so I will not be tempted by other animals wandering through my neighborhood.
Two year old. Neutered Male. Bull Terrier mix.
If you're looking for a dog that knows tricks, here I am. I know sit, down, come, shake and high five with both paws. And I've heard there are a lot more tricks for me to learn (roll over sounds fun). I'm a very playful guy who loves to play with tennis balls and I enjoy catching them mid-air. I'm super cute and an overall lovely dog.
