SALISBURY — Rowan County 4-H will host the first Open Youth Pet Show on Saturday, June 7, at the Rowan County Fairgrounds, 1560 Julian Road.
Check-in begins at 9 a.m., with the show beginning at 10 a.m. All exhibitors must be pre-registered.
The pet show is open to any youth, regardless of membership in 4-H, ages 5-18. Age is determined by the youth’s age as of Jan. 1, 2014.
There are nine divisions that youth can show in: cats, dogs, domestic birds, ferrets, rabbits, reptiles/amphibians/crustaceans, small animals (gerbils, hamsters, guinea pigs, rats and mice), and unique (pot-belly pig, pygmy goat, hedgehog and poultry).
Each division has multiple categories. Each youth is only allowed to enter one animal per category.
All dogs, cats and ferrets must provide proof of a current rabies vaccination upon check-in on the day of the event. All dogs must have had vaccinations for distemper and parvo, in addition to rabies.
The youth will be judged on showmanship and animals will be judged on grooming/appearance.
