One Marietta organization put on a pageant Saturday morning to help raise awareness for the need of adopting pets.
Pure American Pageants put on the Rock and Paws Pageant.
Several queens, princesses and even princes showed off their style as they competed for crowns and tiaras.
The organization is raising money for the Humane Society of the Ohio Valley.
With the recent rescues in Washington County they're hoping this event will help stop the shelter from overcrowding.
"Everyday we wake up and we know that we are a blessing and we want to be a blessing to others. So through doing this, we're not only touching the lives of the animals but hopefully getting people out there and aware that these animals need homes, forever homes," says 2013 Pure American Miss Majestic Ohio, Christina McMahon.
Pure American Pageants has collected nearly $2,000 in donations.
