2022 Event Has Been Cancelled.

Join us for the most dog-gone fun event of Winter Carnival! Dogs will race on a short track while pulling a weighted sled.  Dogs compete in different weight classes for Top Dog! The top three from each weight class get a prize. This event is just for fun, so no experience is necessary. All equipment is provided.

Want to race? Registration is just $15 per dog. The dog will need to be weighed at the time of registration, so be sure to bring your pooch! Registration is on on Sunday at Alpine Village from 10:45am-12:30pm.  Races end at 1pm.

Want to watch? This is a very fun event for spectators. Please keep in mind that spots up front get the best view, so be kind and rotate out so other folks get a chance to see.

Want to sponsor?  We have a variety of sponsorship opportunities available for this fun family-friendly event! Be sure to check out sponsorship opportunities here: Sponsorship Opportunities Monster Dog Pull 2020

Please PAWS for a resounding round of applause from MCPAWS to our community for your involvement in and support at the Monster Dog Pull and the Winter Carnival Parade.


None of these events would be possible without our amazing MCPAWS Volunteers. Countless hours were spent planning and working at the events. MCPAWS Volunteers make a difference at the shelter every day and in so many ways. We are very grateful for you!

Huge thank you to our volunteer photographer Mel Ota for donating his time and talents! Photos are now available for purchase. Proceeds from photo sales will be donated to MCPAWS!
