WINSTON-SALEM, NC - Triad dogs and their human friends are stepping up to the plate to help others afford emergency, life-saving care.

Not everyone is able to afford helping their furry companions, so the Fourth Annual Triad Dog Games hopes raise money for the Sergei Foundation which covers those fees.

Pet owners can enter their dogs to compete in events or come and take a 'paws' from their everyday routine.

Dogs will compete in Flyball, DiscDogathon, dock jumping, and more.

The event is at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday and 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Sunday.

Admission is $10 per person, $5 for kids 10 and under, and pets come free!
