Megan Brainard of Anoka, Minnesota, who owns the Zsa Zsa will receive $1,500 after the dog he found on a pet-finding site, won the title on Saturday night at the Sonoma-Marin Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds in Petaluma.

The contest is in its 30th year. It is usually held on Friday nights, but organizers moved the competition to Saturday in an effort to draw a bigger audience.

Dogs in the annual competition flaunt their imperfections – some have hairless bodies, others have lolling tongues. The dogs and their handlers walk down a red carpet. The dogs are evaluated by a panel of judges.

The contestants included a blackhead-covered Chinese Crested-Dachshund mutt, a bulldog mix with excess wrinkly skin and a Pekingese named Wild Thang.

According to the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds website, the goal of the event is to raise awareness of animal rescue. “We celebrate the spirit and imperfections that make these dogs loveable and adoptable,” says Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds CEO Sarah Cummings.

Dog owners must provide documentation of veterinarian checks to determine the competing animal is healthy. The Sonoma-Marin Fair has also partnered with animal rights groups such as the Sonoma County Humane Society to educate the public about animals and to provide opportunities to adopt rescue dogs. The fair issues a photo of the winner, a press release summing up the contest, and YouTube video within hours of the contest conclusion. Contestants for each new year are featured on the website before the contest as well in the World’s Ugliest Dog Voting Gallery.
