This is the weekend for the Every Pet is Perfect Parade. Save Our Animal Rescues, also known as SOAR, provides financial assistance for animals in need of life-saving medical or surgical care who otherwise would be euthanized. A fundraising event will be held on Sunday at the Sweet Briar College Riding Center in Amherst. Bring your pet for a day of friendly competition; prizes will be awarded for best grin, best trick, most spots, loudest bark and best in show. Gates open at noon.
