Mother Nature was smiling on all the pet owners, staff and volunteers from Animal Allies this past Saturday as they kicked off the 21st Annual Walk for Animals. The walk is the biggest fundraiser of the year for Animal Allies and was the largest turnout they have had to date. 400 walkers participated with four legged friends of all types.

Kim Holland, Community Outreach Manager at Animal Allies said: "The community support we saw at the 2013 Walk for Animals event was astounding!  We are so blessed to live in a community were pets are not only valued and cherished but a community that supports the mission of what we do here at Animal Allies!"

I was fortunate enough to be at the event again this year with our dog Tinkie a chihuahua that we adopted last summer from Animal Allies. It is amazing to see all these pet owners and their cherished pets out to support such a great cause.
