What an incredible day the 24th Annual Walk with the Animals was! Walkers completed a 1.3 mile walk around Lake Evans at Fairmount Park then enjoyed an array of booths in Flea-less Market, had the opportunity to get pet behavior tips, dogs got to play on agility equipment, attendees watched a demonstration by Riverside Police Department K9 Officers and filled their bellies a hearty pancake breakfast.

More than $53,000 was raised for the cats, dogs, puppies and kittens that reside at the Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center. We cannot thank you enough!

Top Individual Fundraisers:
Wendie Monrroy who raised $2,925
Gillian Robles who raised $1,355
Sandra Evelyn-Veere who raised $1,200
Jenifer Martin who raised $960
Stacy Fringer who raised $800

Top Teams:
1st Place: Paws for a Cause who raised $1,175
2nd Place: Mutts and Wiggles Butts who raised $835
3rd Place: Sunny with a Chance of Pibbles who raised $580

Enormous thanks goes out to every walker who gathered pledges, told their friends to join in, came out to support the event, or helped in any other way! Big "high-paws" also to the wonderful volunteers who make it possible to put on such a huge event. Thank you all!
