Whether adding to the tally of common names or forging ahead with a unique moniker, CSRD residents of Area C and Ranchero can register their dogs and have a chance at a prize in the process. In a contest running on the regional district’s Facebook and Instagram accounts, residents with licensed dogs are invited to share photos of their furry friends. Entrants have to post a photo of their dog with the license tags visible to the CSRD’s Facebook page or tag @columbiashuswaprd on Instagram. Everyone who makes a post will be eligible for the $100 prize, but each licensed dog can only be entered once.
