The Ingham County Fairgrounds and Animal Control & Shelter hosted the first Doggy Days event for dog lovers of all ages, September 20 and 21. Doggy Days offered a variety of events such as dog grooming, training, agility demonstrations and even a superhero dog costume contest.
The event was headlined by the internationally toured Extreme Canine Stunt Dog Show, these high-flying dogs performed for audiences both Friday and Saturday. Suhey Velez, co-host and trainer of the Extreme Canines Stunt Dog Show, said the show gives dogs they adopt from shelters across the United States another chance at life.
Ultimately, the event aimed to get dogs from the shelter adopted by animal lovers. Volunteer at the Ingham County Animal Shelter, Sheri Eldred, shared the story of how she nursed one of her dogs back to health, Loverboy.
