NEW ORLEANS -- Melanie Hebert and Sheba Turk took part in the fun at the LASPCA's Dog Day Afternoon event on Sunday at City Park.

Canines take center stage at the event. Local shelters and rescue groups had dogs up for adoption.

There were also obedience demonstrations and competitions for the best dressed dog, an owner-pet lookalike contest and silly pet tricks.
