RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - A little fun on the river can help some animals in need overcome their illnesses.

Richmond Animal Care and Control is hosting Paddle for Pups from 9 a.m. to noon Sept. 15 at Huguenot Flatwater Park to raise money for parvovirus treatment for animals at the shelter.

Leashed dogs are welcome and participants are asked to bring their own canoe, kayak or paddleboard.

A $30 donation to RACC is required to participate and includes an event T-shirt. Registration is open through Sept. 13.
