Doggy Derby Day in East Texas

Posted: Updated:

TYLER (KYTX) - Organizers call it a celebration of the Kentucky Derby which began today.

East Texans came out to celebrate the first annual Doggy Derby Day in Tyler.

Dogs competed for prizes in races, and even received best hat awards.

Money raised today will go to homeless pets in Smith County to help pay for the adoption event in September, the "Pet-a-palooza."

"We haven't tallied up all of our great generous donations yet, but its been a really good day," said SPCA President, Deborah Dobbs. 

Organizers say they hope to host this event annually in the spring.
