Humane Society hosts annual doggie carnival in Forsyth Park

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The great four-legged friends of Savannah and beyond took over Forsyth Park on Saturday morning for the Humane Society for Greater Savannah's annual doggie carnival.

All of the money raised during the event benefits the Humane Society and helps the organization provide funding for their spay and neuter programs, their low cost, vaccine clinics, and the host animals for adoption at the Humane Society building on Sallie Mood Drive.

There was a doggie derby, paw print art, doggie and me photo booths, and so much more. One couple who got engaged at the doggie carnival spoke about how their dog brought them closer together.

"About 6 months ago I guess, we adopted our baby boy Booey," said Dustin Allen, holding his new fiance Jessica Baley close. "He's kind of what brought us closer together. Just felt like the opportune time to do what we did. To take the leap and it just worked out perfectly."

Our Jamie Ertle was also out there this afternoon in the dunk tank.
