RESCUE GALLERY - Deadline for entry - February 12th
The perfect way to celebrate our rescued Berners is to tell their story in the Rescue Gallery! Each participant's photo & story will be prominently featured on display at the 2022 National Specialty on the concourse of the Hampton Roads Convention Center. Regardless of whether your Berner was rescued by a regional club, private group, or individual, or if they came from a puppy mill, broker, online site, or other bad situation, theirs is a story worth sharing. Have more than one rescue or want to honor one or more that has already crossed over the Bridge? Everyone is welcome, including non-BMDCA members!
Choose from the following menu of packages to honor your special dogs:
#1 Complete Package: $28 (includes creation of your dog's photo display, personalized pin (with or without rainbow), and one fabulous story book featuring all the photos and stories on display at the National Specialty; additional booklets sold separately
#2 Full Package/Owner photo: $25 (same as Complete Package but discounted slightly for owners that prefer mailing a hard-copy of their dog's 8" x 10" color portrait for the display)
#3 Display Only: $18 (includes creation of your dog's photo display), the perfect option for dogs that have been featured in a previous Rescue Gallery and/or do not need the pin/booklet
#4 Display Only/Owner photo: $15 (same as Display Only but discounted slightly for owners that prefer mailing a hard-copy of their dog's 8" x 10" color portrait for the display)
