The Village of Bellevue Leisure Services Department in partnership with Oak View Veterinary Hospital of Bellevue is leading a fundraising drive to have a public dog park in the village of Bellevue. The group has planned the K-9 Karnival, a fundraising event to raise awareness and funds to develop a site.
The event is planned for Saturday, May 18, 2013 from 9:30am to 12:30am at Josten Park (2280 Town Hall Road). A variety of games and contests for dogs, children’s’ activities, raffles & silent auctions, dog costume contests, and pet photos will be offered. Admission into the event costs $5 per dog. Participation in some of the activities will range from $1 to $10. Organizers hope to raise approximately $2,000 from the event.
