“You Lucky Dog!” is more than an expression, it’s an event in Renton this weekend to support pets.

At this free event, folks can bring their canine best friend to get photos together at the pet photo booth. WARM 106.9 radio’s Heather will also be there to bring the music and host giveaways. Attendees can register for a chance to win a $250 PetSmart gift card.

Donations of new, unopened cans or bags of pet food are encouraged, and all donations will go to Regional Animal Services of King County (RASKC) who serve as the animal control agency, adoption center and shelter for lost pets for over 24 cities in King County. Renton has it’s own animal control program through Renton Police Department. Attendees of the event can drop off food at the event, or throughout the week at dog food collection bins set up in Landing stores.

The pet food drive and photo event is from noon to 2 p.m., Saturday Sept. 21, at the Landing plaza, across from Regal Cinema. Dogs must be leashed at all times at the event.
