TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) – Team of Mercy has announced the top 25 dogs for the “Dog Days of Summer” fundraiser.
All of the dogs who have been registered have been featured on Team of Mercy’s website. The dogs who raised the most money, were placed in the top 25.
“We were thinking, okay, we need to add something else to the roster and something that we can grow on each year like we have our color event. So we got to talking with the Chamber downtown and some of the employees and stuff there and we just came together with downtown Terre Haute and thought of ‘Dog Days of Summer,'” Christina Crist, Executive Director of Team of Mercy, said.
Now the top 25 dogs will be in a dog show on August 5th. The winner will be crowned “top dog”.
Crist said this was Team of Mercy’s first year with this fundraising event, and they had 40 entries.
Along with the dog show, there will also be live music, a foam party, and several downtown businesses will be serving food and drinks for anyone to enjoy.
The event will take place from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m on Wabash Avenue, and community members are encouraged to come with their furry friends.
The top 25 dogs are as follows:
- Leo Frey
- Eli English
- Louie Roberts
- Roody Allen
- Pepper Britton
- Rory Sue Sellers
- Toby Shark Iron Pup
- Meeka Moo Vaziri
- Elli May
All money collected will go towards Team of Mercy and the services the organization provides.
