BALTIMORE (WMAR) -
This weekend was perfect for a walk with your four legged friends.
Druid Hill Park was the place to be, the Maryland SPCA held it's 18th annual March for the Animals fundraiser.
Animal lovers came out and walked the 1 1/2 mile around the park and enjoyed a festival. The event is one of the SPCA's largest and it helps save thousands of lives every year.
Dog owner Jennifer Thomsen says she participated in the walk because "we raise money to help the SPCA and they use it to take care of the animals. We like to do it because we want to help the animals, and we like to bring our dogs out for exercise."
The money provides care, shelter, food and medical needs of homeless pets in the adoption center.
The SPCA had what looked like a great turn out, and they are hoping to top the nearly $350,000 in donations received last year.
