AKC RDO Day in Raleigh

Saturday, September 26, 2009

The 7th Annual AKC Responsible Dog Ownership Day, held at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds in Raleigh, NC on Saturday, September 26th was a great success! The free event welcomed close to 2,000 dog lovers for an afternoon of demonstrations, giveaways, games, face painting, and much more! Over 100 dogs signed up for AKC Canine Good Citizen® testing or took advantage of discounted microchipping from AKC Companion Animal Recovery. A raffle raised $736 for AKC CAR Canine Disaster Relief. Dog lovers were treated to an incomparable educational experience and information generously provided by our sponsors. New this year, the AKC and Western Wake Fire Rescue will promoted pet fire safety by giving away pet fire safety tips and free ADT pet window clings.

We thank all club members for their valuable participation in Meet the Breeds and our sponsor, Invisible Fence Company®, for making this AKC RDO Day a great success.
