Los Alamitos Race Course is looking for a few good wiener dogs to participate in the 18th annual Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals on Saturday, July 20. The event features 50-yard dashes for Dachshunds with proceeds benefiting the Seal Beach Animal Care Center. The Care Center is a non-profit group dedicated to finding home for stray animals in the Orange County area.
Los Alamitos Race Course is inviting dachshund owners to enter their prized pet into this year’s doxie races.
