The inaugural Planet Dog Ball was held on April 8, 2017 at the Westin Harborview Hotel. In celebration of Planet Dog’s twentieth anniversary, community members and their dogs joined together to honor two important organizations: America’s Vetdogs and K9s On The Front Line. WCSH-6 TV’s meteorologist Keith Carson hosted the benefit, and all proceeds from the evening went to support these critical programs that provide service dogs to America’s veterans.
