My friend Cynthia has been so excited the last couple of weeks. I've known her for almost six years... And all six she's been trying to get a dog park for Shreveport.

With the recent approval from the city, they are one step closer to making it a reality.

She sent me an email about a fundraiser this weekend to help:

DOG WASH Saturday

Raising money for Shreveport’s first dog park to be located in Hamel’s Memorial Park on Clyde Fant Pkwy, by the river

This Saturday, Sept 24

11 – 2pm

1845 Line Ave (Near Line and Olive)

$10 per dog- dogs to be washed and dried

Enjoy our Lemonade Stand while at the dog wash, serving up "Blue Puppy Punch".
