RENO, NV - Want to enjoy the day with your furry friend while benefiting homeless animals?

The Nevada Humane Society is asking animal lovers to participate in the Walk for Animals event at the Sparks Marina on Saturday, May 24, 2014.

The Walk for Animals event is hoping to raise $100,000 to provide care for homeless pets at the Nevada Humane Society, according to an event organizer.

She says the event includes a two-mile fun walk, music, contests, face painting, prizes and more.

Although the event happens in May, people can begin raising funds for the homeless animals immediately.

The event organizer says participants raising over $35 will receive a Walk for Animals T-shirt featuring artwork by Pickles cartoonist, Brian Crane.

To register for the event, call 775-856-2000 or visit the shelter's website.
