There were 51 dogs registered to compete in the one-day event. They were from Acadiana, as well as the furthest one, from Houston.
In attendance were close to 500 people who watched the dogs race.
The event was a fundraiser for the Vermilion Parish Chamber of Commerce. Although the complete dollar amount had not been totaled, the Chamber is predicated to raise close to $2,000 for one-day event.
Another success story was the adoption of five dogs from the Vermilion Animal Aid Society.
