DOTHAN-- Some say a dog is man's best friend, and that's exactly what many Wiregrass residents felt today at the first ever fundraiser for the local animal shelter.
The Dothan Police Department sponsored "Bark in the Park” to help raise money for medical costs.
The non-profit group 'Save-A-Pet' normally covers medical costs, but they're feeling the effects of the struggling economy.
The event featured a 5-k run, live music, pet adoption, a pet fashion show, and even a police k-9 demonstration.
All proceeds will go to the Dothan Animal Shelter.
