We asked what made this year stand out to producer Zak “Pup Havok” Rittenhouse said, “We are really showing the diversity of the pup community. We are showing that here in the Ohio Valley you are welcome no matter who you are and how you identify.”

After a grueling evening led by Mistress of Ceremonies Stella Boehme, a local drag personality, who had folks in stiches with her wit and sass, Pup Kaine was announced as Ohio Valley Puppy 2016 and Pup Ace as First Runner Up.

Ohio Valley Puppy is slated to take place again 9/22/17 to 9/24/17. For more information about how you can get involved with the Ohio Valley Puppy contest reach out to ohiovalleypuppy@gmail.com.
