Dogtober Fest 2013 - WSLS 10 NBC in Roanoke/Lynchburg Va

Dogtober Fest 2013

Posted: Updated:
ROANOKE COUNTY, VA -

Man's four legged friends were out in full force this afternoon at the St. Francis Service Dogs Dogtober Fest.

WSLS 10 is a sponsor of the event and there was a little something for dogs of all kinds. From crafts for the Picasso-type pets, to an obstacle course and even a parade of dogs. There was definitely a lot going on, and it was all of a good cause.

"We're local, so it's important for us to get the support of the community. And they do support us through volunteering and come out and attend the event. It's fun for the entire family and we're grateful to all of those who participate," says Niki Voudren, a development director at St. Frances.

Proceeds from today's event benefit St. Frances Service Dogs.
