Partnering with the Sonoma-Marin Fair’s The World’s Ugliest Dog Contest to help misplaced pets find a forever home that’s as beautiful as they are.
The World’s Ugliest Dog Contest and Marin-based Pawscout, Inc., will launch a community campaign to celebrate the beauty of pets everywhere while promoting pet safety through community connection. With a staggering 1 in 7 pets lost each year in the U.S. alone, this partnership made perfect sense.
Keeping pets safe in their forever homes is one of Pawscout’s biggest priorities,” and was created to promote safety, fun, and the irreplaceable power of community. Pawscout is affordable and includes a free App to help pet owners of every lifestyle stay connected.
This year’s contest will be held on Saturday, June 23, 2018, during the Sonoma-Marin Fair, which runs from June 20-24. For more information on the fair and World’s Ugliest Dog Contest, please visit sonoma-marinfair.org.

About the Contest
For nearly 30 years, the World’s Ugliest Dog® Contest has been a testament that the pedigree does not define the pet. Dogs of all breeds and sizes have warmed our hearts and filled our lives with unconditional love. This world-renowned event celebrates the imperfections that make all dogs special and unique.
The day begins with pre-contest entertainment and information on pet care and adoption. Each pup and handler will bask in the limelight as they are escorted along the red carpet to show off their unique beauty to the judges, international media, celebrity host, and fans. It’s a wonderful show of pageantry and pride.
And while fun and entertaining, the contest speaks to the importance of advocating for the adoration of all animals and the benefits of adopting. Many of the contestant dogs have been rescued from shelters and puppy mills, to find loving homes in the hands of those willing to adopt. Please join us in raising awareness and support for the pets yet to be placed in a loving home.
