AKC RDO Day in Raleigh

Saturday, September 27, 2008

The 6th Annual AKC Responsible Dog Ownership Day, held at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds in Raleigh, NC on Saturday, September 27th was a great success! The free event welcomed over 3,000 dog lovers for an afternoon of demonstrations, giveaways, games, face painting, and much more! Nearly 150 dogs signed up for AKC Canine Good Citizen® testing or took advantage of discounted microchipping from AKC Companion Animal Recovery. A raffle for AKC CAR Canine Disaster Relief raised nearly $900! 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, Invisible Fence Company® and Best Friends Pet Care, for making this AKC RDO Day a great success.
