RANGELEY — The Rangeley Lakes Chamber of Commerce and Rangeley Health and Wellness announce plans for the first Best Dog on Earth Day event, a celebration of dogs and Earth Day, from 9:30 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 22.

The event will kick off at the Rangeley Inn, where participants can register for a 3-mile run or 2-mile walk. There will also be a 1-mile route for the Kids/Puppy Fun Walk/Run.

All participants will be entered into a drawing to win the Best Dog on Earth Day gift basket and each registered participant will receive a tree sapling to take home and plant. In addition, there will be special offers from local businesses.

The Franklin County Animal Shelter will be on hand to provide adoption information and nail trims, and a portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated to the shelter.

After the Fun Walk/Run, there will be certificates awarded in several categories, including best dog trick, best look-alikes (dog and owner), best tail wagger and more.
