Ely Fall Fest Doxie Dash
The 1st Annual Ely Fall Fest Doxie Dash was held Saturday September 17th, 2016.
Over 30 wiener dogs participated in the 1st Annual Ely Fall Fest Doxie Dash. It was a fun event that raised money for the Cedar Valley Humane Society. We look forward to seeing you next year!
ELY, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- People in Ely raced their furry friends to the finish line all for a good cause on Saturday morning.
The Doxie Dash took place during the Ely fall festival. More than 30 dachshunds raced each other into their owner's arms.
While, other dogs decided to soak up the sun instead. The proceeds from the event were donated to the Cedar Valley Humane Society.
"It's great to help out a cause such as this," Melissa Reed with the Downtown Dachsund. "Obviously you can tell people were here for the benefit of the Cedar Rapids Humane society, not necessarily to win a trophy."
The top three doggy dashers not only took home a badge of pride and honor, they also get to put a trophy on a shelf at home.
