Duluth, MN (Northland's Newscenter) - Four legged companions walked along side their owners as more than 300 people turned out for the event put on in support of Animal Allies Humane Society.

This is the second largest fundraiser for the facility and hopes to bring in more than 30 thousand dollars this year.

The event not only supports Animal Allies but also their educational programs and their drive to educate people on the need to spay and neuter their pets.

"It's absolutely key because otherwise we have a pet population that's out of control and for Animal Allies, one of their main goals, and vision, and mission is to control that over pet population and that starts with spay and neuter," said Ted Schick, chair person for this year's Walk for Animals.

Schick says this year there were more than just dogs walking with their owners.

A horse, a rabbit, a duck, and even a tortoise made it out to support the cause.
