Salty Dog Day takes place annually in May, to raise money and to celebrate all things dog.

“Operation Spay Bay will use the money to put it into our spay where we help people, even with our low costs, who may not be able to spay or nuder their animals,” said Cotter. “This will help out greatly so more animals will get fixed.”

The winner of the Salty Dog mayor election, a mix-breed named Riley, also attended the reception and check presentation day.
