Proceeds from a "Dog Jog" Saturday, Aug. 22, in Sugarhouse Park will help defray the cost of raising and socializing puppies to be future guide dogs for the blind.

The Utah Veterinary Medical As-so-ci-ation will sponsor the event, a 5-K race for runners and their dogs that begins with pre-registration at 8 a.m. The race begins at the Northwest Terrace, said Dr. Dana D. Clark, a veterinarian and chairman of the association's public relations committeeRegistration is $10 if conducted before Saturday morning. It will cost $12 on the day of the race. Registration includes a T-shirt. Call Debbie Tripp, 295-1711, to register. Salt Lake residents may contact veterinarians for forms.

Clark said the Dog Jog is a non-competitive event. "If people just want to walk the 3.1 miles they are welcome to participate," he said.
