K9Splash! dog swim

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Puppies were splashing around in Cedar Rapids this weekend during the K9Splash! dog swim. Money from the event will benefit off-leash parks in Cedar Rapids.

Dogs of all sizes and breeds were there playing in the park. Organizers say this event usually brings in 600 dogs and their owners.

"This event is a great opportunity for the dogs to exercise get a chance to interact with other dogs and interact with other people, really allowing them to kind of broaden their horizons, get out of the house," said Marie Appel, K9Cola Chairman.
