Capital K9s' Fundraiser Is This Sunday

All licensed and vaccinated dogs are invited to celebrate the end of summer in spirited fashion this coming Sunday, September 11th, as Capital K9s sponsors the 5th annual Dog Paddle at the Goodman Pool, 325 East Olin Ave.

The fun and frolic is a major fundraiser for the Madison Police Department's K9 Unit. Dogs take over the pool from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Admission is $12 per dog. Human friends are free.

The widely successful party attracts around 1000 dogs every year. There are games, contests, prizes, as well as good old paddling around in some really clear water.
