At Oak Ridge Town Council's July 11 meeting, representatives from the Canine Capers Committee presented each of six animal-related rescue groups with a check for $700. The rescue organizations included Ruff Love Rescue, Project No Kill Canine Rescue, Susie's Hope, SPCA of the Triad, Guilford County Animal Services, and North Star Bloodhounds.


Canine Capers originated a little over seven years ago as a community event to bring dogs and their humans together for a day of fun canine activities and to raise funds for the Oak Ridge Bark Park, located in Oak Ridge Town Park.


Over the years, funds raised from Canine Capers have been used to place benches in the bark park, supply water sources and install permanent agility equipment.


With no major bark park projects on the horizon, members of the committee decided to once again donate profits from this year's event on April 27 to participating animal rescue groups.
