Douglas Animal Welfare Group hosts an animal boutique, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, in front of the Carson Valley Museum & Cultural Center, 1477 Highway 395, Gardnerville.
The new Bow-Wow Boutique merchandise is donated by Linda Vokota, owner of Critter Junction. Coats, booties, clothing, leashes, choke chains and harnesses will be sold for 75 percent off the original price. Specialty items such as lighted safety collars and leashes, jogging leashes, heated beds, lamb's wool harnesses, goggles and life jackets will be available on a limited basis.
"We expect the sale to be a huge success, with unique items such as the Yorkie-sized ruffled outfits and Rottweiler-sized Harley-Davidson jackets selling early in the day," said DAWG president Laura Winking. "Our wide variety of merchandise is perfect for kennel owners, private owners or those looking for a special gift for the dog who has everything."
Shoppers are encouraged to bring a camera, their pet or even the whole family for a photo with Santa, who will be a special guest at the boutique to support DAWG.
Proceeds of the sale will be used by DAWG, a nonprofit group of volunteers who work to better the lives of animals in Douglas County by improving adoptability. Information at www.dawgrescue.com
