DENVILLE, NJ-- The four legged family members of many Denville families got their day at the lake as Dogs Gone Wild: Dog Days of Summer came to Cook's Pond.

As the unofficial kick off to the beginning of the summer season, dogs get a chance to run around off their leashes in a completely fenced in park. Cook's Pond plays host to the event every year, once in May and once in Sept.

"This is the shelter's biggest fundraiser," Korinne Petrillo, one of the organizers of the event said.

The funds that are raised at Dogs Gone Wild directly benefit the Denville Animal Shelter. The shelter does not charge fees, therefore they are completely donation funded. With Dogs Gone Wild being the biggest fundraiser, the more funds raised, the better.

"The money goes to the animal shelter to pay for things like vet care and purchasing of food and treats for the animals," Petrillo said.

This year, the funds raised topped any dollar amount raised before. With a $20 family entrance fee and a best estimate of over 115 families coming out with their furry family members, over $3,400 was raised. Many families also make donations to the event and buy tricky tray tickets. The money that is raised in the barbecue area is also donated back to the shelter.

The event will take place again in Sept. to mark the end of the summer season. Cook's Pond officially opens for summer on May 28.
