Purple Paws: Preble Pets Against Domestic Violence

Join YWCA Dayton’s Preble County Office during Domestic Violence Awareness Month for this (virtual!) afternoon of family-friendly fun with fur-riends, presented by Parker Hannifin. Show off your pet for this fifth annual signature fundraiser benefiting Preble County’s only domestic violence shelter and 24/7 crisis hotline.
This year, we’re moving the popular Pet Showcase to an online, interactive format! Vote all month long and then get ready to celebrate via Zoom on Oct. 31. Awards will be presented for: Best Pose, Most Creative, Most “Not Dog,” “Twinning” (pet and owner lookalikes), and Best In Show.
The live Zoom event will also feature surprise guests, pet performances, virtual activities, family crafts you can download from home, and more. Hosted by comedian and Dayton native Beth Stelling, our 2019 Marsha Froelich Survivor Award recipient and creator of #ifanimalshadgoogle.
Online photo contest: $10 per pet to enter; $1 = 1 vote. Voting will be open from Oct. 1-28! Live Zoom event registration is free. Follow the conversation online using #PurplePaws.
