‘Pups in the Park’ set for fall

POSTED: June 18, 2014 4:00 a.m.

Plans are under way for the Dawson County Humane Society's inaugural Pups in the Park Dog Show later this fall.

Set to take place Oct. 11 at Rock Creek Park, the event is a collaborative fundraiser by several local organizations in support of the county's animal shelter.

"With a joint effort from Dawson County civic organizations including the Lions Club, Rotary Club, Kiwanis Club, Woman's Club, and chamber of commerce, the event will offer fun for all ages," said Carolyn Bowen, humane society president.

Among the activities planned, spectators can expect to be entertained by contests with prizes for silliest pet trick, owner and dog look-a-likes and cutest pup.

There will also be search and rescue demonstrations and agility presentations, as well as a number of vendors and live entertainment.

Proceeds from the event benefit the no kill shelter and its volunteers' efforts to find homes for the county's homeless pets.

"Most of our revenue is generated through fundraising events such as the dog show and donations from our generous supporters. Only a third of our operating expenses are generated from county revenues even though we are under contract to provide services to all animals picked up by county animal control," Bowen said.
