SYCAMORE TOWNSHIP, Ohio — People and pets came together Sunday to raise money for the K-9s who serve and protect our community.
The Pause for Our Paws pet festival welcomed every breed as they raised money for the K-9 officers of the Hamilton County Sheriff's Department. The money raised from the event went towards outfitting patrol cruisers with the latest safety equipment for the furry deputies.
“Like any job, your job is easier if you have the right tools," Scott Horton, from Dog is Good, LLC, said. "Anything that makes it easier for them, I want to be apart of.”
The event brought cat and dog lovers together for a day of music, food and prizes. Rescue organizations were also in attendance if people wanted to give a home to a furry pal.
Eve Vidal, one of the co-organizers for Pause For Our Paws, said in a world where people feel like they are growing further and further apart, she felt this was the best way to bring people and their pets a little closer.
"Pets are something that brings us together," Vidal said. "We just all have a love for our furry friends and we thought why not have a fun day where people can come out, bring their animals on leashes and just spend the afternoon coming together.”
