Animal welfare and rescue organizations can often be found at community events in order to showcase the animals that need loving homes. Youngsters Lynden and Taylah Mercier couldn't resist a chance to meet Tinkerbell, a dog at the Patti Dale Animal Shelter. Adoptable dogs were given a chance to strut their stuff in a doggy fashion show at the recent Lower Mainland Quarter Horse Association Horse Bazaar and Country Fair. The horse association includes community groups at the event so they can showcase the work they do. Taking part in the fashion show were the Langley Animal Protection Society (LAPS) which runs the shelter, Size Small Dog Rescue of Langley, and Our Last Hope, a rescue group in Hope. PetSmart supplied outfits for the show. Langley is also home to groups that care for cats (CARES), small animals such as rabbits (Small Animal Rescue Society) and wildlife (Critter Care) as well as ideo groups that train service animals and provide therapeutic horseback riding.
