Dog Splash Raises Funds for CDHS | VideoMichelle San Miguel | 9/9/2012
Dogs competed in numerous contests, from best pet costume to largest and smallest dog. Although the park closed to the public before Labor Day, it opened for one last day for the fundraiser.
"Last year we actually had two events. One event was called the Raging Rivers Family Fun Day. We had that one weekend and then we had the Shaggy Shuffle the next weekend. So this year we decided to make it one extremely fun day for the dogs and combine the two events together," said Mandy Schaaf, volunteer coordinator for the Central Dakota Humane Society.
The event raised about $20,000. The money helps the shelter pay for daily expenses taking care of the animals.
