Dog resources on display at Bark in the Park

Dogs from HANDDS to the Rescue were available for adoption at Saturday's Bark in the Park.

GRAND TRAVERSE COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- Many in Traverse City spent their Saturday checking out resources for their four-legged friends at the 9th annual Bark in the Park, hosted by HANDDS to the Rescue.

HANDDS (Helping Abused Neglected Disabled Displaced Souls) to the Rescue is a Traverse City nonprofit, and this is their main fundraiser for the year.

The event featured dogs ready to adopt, but also had resources for current dog owners.

Those resources included vendors that offered a variety of dog products, pet memorial and cremation services and even the Cherry Capital Mobile Pet Hospital.

"I think it's good for the community, fun for people to bring their dogs here," said Patti Goudey of HANDDS to the Rescue. "If they need to see the vet, he's here. A lot of people are not aware of what our community has for dogs. It's just a wonderful things for people to come out and see what's going on in the dog world."

There was also a dog agility course for dogs and their owners to test out their skills.

Proceeds from a silent auction at the event go towards HANDDS to the Rescue.
