Putts 4 Mutts Golf Benefit Tournament


The 2nd Annual Putts 4 Mutts Golf Benefit Tournament was a hoot. The tournament was benefitting three great organizations; Friends of the Animal Center Foundation, Safe Haven of Iowa County and Paws & Effect.

The golf outing had a great turn-out and even better weather (because in Iowa an aweful lot hinges on the weather), and that's important!

Several dogs and cats were present to greet the participants and in some cases providing a little bit of pre-golf animal assisted therapy and for others they got a good luck kiss or two (from the dogs).

Congratulations to Sara Tokheim and her volunteers for a smoothly run event.

patiently waits for the shotgun start.


The three benefactors of the event set
up to meet and greet the participants.


Cadence (our model dog for the logo) was distracted
by the days activities but Roggen worked the crowd
even hitching her first ever ride on a golf cart.


Tagged just finished yawning, (he's not saying golf
is boring he was only saying that he had to get up early again today).

He soon regained his composer and trained his attention
back to hole 9 which had a hole-in-one contest.


While waiting for that all elusive hole-in-one, Tag learned how to
pull the golf tees out of the ground and hand them up.


Special guest Service Dog Gabor
made an exemplary appearance.
