Dogs, owners go all out 'Walk for the Animals' fundraiser

Dogs, owners go all out animals fundraiser

THE ORANGE COUNTY REGISTER

Paws of all persuasions gathered in Huntington Beach to go for a walk Sunday morning.

But this wasn't just any stroll.

Pooches from 6 to 160 pounds convened by the hundreds for the 15th annual Walk for the Animals.

The event at Huntington's Central Park was the yearly fundraiser for the Orange County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

The 1960's-inspired event was named "Woofstock." Many dogs and their owners dressed in the theme, donning tie-dyed outfits while competing in costume and best trick contests.

"They're all here for a collective reason," said volunteer Beth Rieser. "They have a passion for dogs."

Kevin Marlin of Orange came with his rescued Husky and a message for prospective dog owners.

"Be kind and be aware of the animals you have," he said. "They're not lawn ornaments. If you want one of those, go to Lowe's."
