From Capital K9's:
Thanks to dedicated volunteers, generous sponsors and a heap of water-loving dogs the annual event to help raise money for the Madison K9 Unit is back. We are expecting a crowd so be sure to come early and have your registration form filled out to avoid long waiting times.
What is Dog Paddle?
Each year Capital K9s hosts a canine only swim event to raise money for the Madison Police Department K9 Unit. A census of the greater Madison area puts the number of licensed dogs at near 15,000. More than 1000 of those were at the event in 2009 and that number is expected to climb. Activities may include, but are not limited to the following:
There is an admission and registration fee of $10 per dog. The fee also includes entry for two people. For those without dogs there will be a fee of $5 per person. Children 14 and under will be admitted free.
When is it?
September 12, 10 am – 4 pm. Other than menacing weather, this event will go on rain-or-shine.
