Dog Olympics raises money for NC animal rescues

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

Dogs of all shapes and sizes had a tail-wagging good time in Raleigh Saturday at the 22nd Annual Dog Olympics. 

The event included athletic and non-athletic competitions. 

The Raleigh Kennel Club sponsored a free microchip clinic.  Microchips can be scanned with a handheld device to help ensure lost pets will be returned to their owners. 

Bill winters' 5-yr.-old Chihuahua earned bronze in the small dog limbo competition.  "He and I are inseparable,” said Winters.  “No matter what goes on, I know that I always got one friend."

Hosted by members of the College of Veterinary Medicine at N.C. State University, the event is a fundraiser designed to provide support for 13 local rescue groups that work to find stray animals forever homes.
