A local non-profit organization is hosting a fundraiser for Madison Police Department’s K-9 Unit.
Capital K9s helps to fund the unit through their annual Dog Paddle event. Now in its sixth year, the event will be held at Goodman Pool, located at 325 W. Olin Ave.
At the Dog Paddle, dogs can swim, play and compete for prizes. Past events have had 1,000 dogs in attendance.
Capital K9s recently helped the Madison Police Department purchase two new dogs which each cost $50,000, according to the non-profit.
The event will be Sept. 9 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission costs $12 for dogs and dog owners enter for free.
