A handful of cats and dogs will raid the Algonquin Founders' Days Festival on Friday, July 23, in an attempt to win one of 12 categories as part of the annual Dog and Cat Show.

According to event chairwoman Rusty Cherbak, who has been running the event for 15 years, people of all ages and pets older than 1 year are invited to compete for six separate "dog-" and "cat-" egories.
