Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Bayfront Park, in Duluth, was filled with wet dogs and even wetter companions, Saturday morning.

Despite the rainy weather, hundreds of Duluth area animal lovers still participated in the Animal Allies Walk for Animals.

This is the 22nd year the event has raised money to fund humane education, adoption, and spay and neuter programs for the humane society.

The event is the second largest fundraiser Animal Allies hosts, bringing in $30-50,000 every year.

The organizers say their mission is to find "forever homes" for furry friends.

"We have a great bunch of supporters which is awesome. A little disheartening this morning to see the rain, but to see the support today it's awesome. It's really, really great. It's for the animals and that is what it is all about," Kim Holland of the Animal Allies Humane Society.

The biggest fundraising event Animal Allies hosts is a formal silent auction.

That event will be held this fall.
