AKC Responsible Dog Ownership Day - Raleigh, NC
Saturday, September 25, 2010

The 7th Annual AKC Responsible Dog Ownership Day, held at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds in Raleigh, NC on Saturday, September 25th was a great success! Despite the summer like weather, the free event welcomed dog lovers for an afternoon of demonstrations, giveaways, games, face painting, and much more! Several dogs signed up for AKC Canine Good Citizen(r) testing or took advantage of discounted microchipping from AKC Companion Animal Recovery. A raffle raised $291.00 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 sponsor, Invisible Fence Company(r), ADT, Motel 6, and Hill's Small dog breed for making this AKC RDO Day a great success.
