SHOW LOW — The White Mountain Rubber Duck Pluck is set for Thursday, July 4, at the future home of the Pet Allies Animal Shelter, 1321 N. 16th Street in Show Low.
There are three parts to the event beginning with the silent auction that takes place from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. The items have been donated by local businesses, residents and friends of Pet Allies.
The actual Duck Pluck event begins at 12 p.m. This is when a happy-go-lucky canine, Percy, plucks out three different lucky ducks. Each of the three ducks represents a cash prize in the amount of $2,500, $1,000 and $500.
At 2 p.m., the cash prize winners of the Duck Pluck will be announced.
Something else to consider is that it’s not too late to buy a duck. There is still time to support the no-kill animal shelter and give yourself a chance at one of three cash prizes.
Ducks can be purchased online at www.whitemountainrubberduckpluck.org up until 1:45 p.m. on July 4, the day of the event. It’s only $5 to adopt a duck.
The best part? You don’t need to be present to win!
There will also be a host of other activities along with free hot dogs and great door prizes.
Funds raised will be used to further the new Pet Allies Animal Shelter which is under construction. The event is being held at what will be the new location so that the community can see how much progress has been made and what is still needed.
