On April 19, 2015, nearly 200 dog lovers and their four-legged friends attended the Mid-Atlantic Region’s fourth Paws for a Cause event to benefit the Koret School of Veterinary Medicine at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem.  This year’s bark fest at the William F. Bolger Center in Potomac MD, was chaired by Leslie and Bruce Lane and their dog Muffin.  Leon Harris, ABCNews 7 anchor, served as the master of ceremonies. Highlights included ask-the-vet sessions, artists, pet psychics and a performance by “Mutts Gone Nuts,” a canine comedy act that promotes the adoption of rescue animals.    All photos by Clay Blackmore.
