Responsible Dog Ownership Day, Raleigh NC

Saturday, September 24, 2011

The 8th Annual AKC Responsible Dog Ownership Day (RDO), held at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds in Raleigh, NC on Saturday, September 24th was a great success! Despite the overcast skies, the free event welcomed dog lovers for an afternoon of demonstrations, giveaways, games, and much more! The AKC Canine Good Citizen test was taken by 61 dogs with a seventy five percent pass rate. One hundred fifty companion animals took advantage of the discounted AKC Companion Animal Recovery microchipping from the Wake County Animal Care, Control & Adoption. A raffle raised over $1,000.00 for AKC CAR Canine Relief Fund. Dog lovers were treated to an incomparable educational experience and information generously provided by our sponsors.

We thank all club members for their valuable participation in Meet the Breeds and our sponsors  Motel 6, and The Hartford auto and home insurance for making this AKC RDO Day a great success.
