The Humane Society of Douglas County, Inc. Proudly Presents your Lake Superior Ice Festival

Canine King & Queen Contest, Felines of the Festival Contest and Lord & Lady of the Festival Contest!

To submit an entry for your Perfect Pup, your Fancy Feline or ANY other pet you want to include please go to from January 1st – January 19th for a fee of $5 per entrant. You will be asked to submit 1-3 pictures that capture their fanciest side and answer some pet specific questions to help our community vote for this year’s Canine King & Queen, Felines of the Festival, and Lord & Lady of the Festival.

One male and one female winner will be chosen from each category.

Voting will commence on January 20th and will end on January 23th for a fee of $1 per vote. All proceeds from this event will continue to help HSDC provide essential life-saving care to the lost, homeless, and abandoned animals of Douglas County. Canine winners will be crowned on Saturday, January 28th at Noon at Fairlawn Museum! All contestants are invited to join in the fun and see the Coronation Ceremony complete with the Sterling Silver Dance Studio Princesses! If your Canine wins this contest it is expected that you and your Furry Best Friend will be at the ceremony. Feline & Other pet winners are not expected to attend however, we will have an amazing ice sculpture located at the Shelter to represent them.

HSDC is so excited to be part of the Lake Superior Ice Festival again this year! Stop by the Coronation Ceremony and see us!
