Stevens Point has new canine mayor

STEVENS POINT (WAOW) - Stevens Point has a new top dog.

The Humane Society of Portage County organized the 2014 Stevens Point Canine Mayor election to raise money to help the animals they cared for.

19 dogs and one cat went head to head for the spot.

The winner was pup Louie V. He beat out the other pets with more than 5,000 votes.

Louie V will walk in the Fourth of July parade Friday in Stevens Point.

The event raised about $20,000 for the shelter. Each vote was $1.
