BRIDGEPORT -

The Harrison County Humane Society hosted the 18th Annual New Leash on Life Dog Walk and Fundraiser on Saturday.

Dogs of all breeds and sizes attended the fundraiser and competed in some fun competitions.

There were prizes given for best owner dog look-a-like, "too cute for words", "this old dog," and best dressed.

In addition to the competitions, there were services available to help the dogs and owners.

"This event is really what the humane society is all about. We're here talking about spay and neutering, responsible pet ownership. We have a rabies and vaccine clinic. It's going to be held from noon to two and we have low-cost vaccines that will be available," said Laura Miller, the executive director of the Harrison County Humane Society.

The dogs also got to show off their skills and talents in a special contest.

Each trick was filmed and will be submitted to David Letterman's "Stupid Pet Tricks" segment.

Miller said attendance was down this year from previous years, but she hoped making the pet trick contest part of the fundraiser would help get more involvement.

The humane society had some dogs and cats from the shelter at the event to hopefully find them a forever home.
