CARBONDALE — For $100, Carbondale residents can have their own personal Saluki paw prints through a fundraiser for the Carbondale Chamber of Commerce.

The Saluki Pride Committee paints dozens of paw prints around the city every fall, leading to campus, Saluki Stadium and the Banterra Center, to help spur excitement for the school year. Now citizens and business owners in Carbondale can pay to have a set of paw prints for either their driveway or parking lot.

The prints are six feet tall and will be delivered in late July and early August. The deadline to buy them is July 24. 

Fans can email the chamber at info@carbondalechamber.com or mail the online order form in. The order form is available here online or as a PDF at thesouthern.com.

For more information, call 618-549-2146.
