K-9's raise funds for new Lee County Animal Shelter

By Wainwright Jeffers - bio | email

LEESBURG, GA (WALB) – This weekend dozens of animal owners took their pets through an obstacle course in hopes of helping other animals.

Dogs tried their paws at this obstacle course in Leesburg. The K-9's ran after a plastic bag through tiers, tunnels, and over a ramp.

Owners paid $10 to participate to help animals in the counties new shelter.

"Any dog, it doesn't have to be trained or skilled could participate, all ages, all sizes. So far we've had about 55 participants and the money we collect is going to our Animal Shelter in Leesburg," said Judy Powell, Lee Chamber of Commerce Volunteer.

The Leesburg Animal Hospital is also trying to help the new shelter, they're selling 2011 "Mutt A Month" calendars with pictures and stories of the rescued animals for ten dollars.
