The 7th Annual Dachshund Races Return to Abilene Thursday July 24th – Updated
Due to the recent rains and minor flooding that has occurred in Abilene, Rescue The Animals, SPCA Founder Paul Washburn has postponed the 7th Annual Dachshund Races until Thursday, July 24th, 2014. All events and times will remain the same.
7th Annual Dachshund Races and Rescued the Animals “Rescued Dog Reunion” will take place July 17th at Festival Gardens by the Abilene Zoo. This is every dogs show, not just the ones with papers.
