There were lots of wagging tails and smiling faces in Riverside on Saturday for the 19th annual "Walk with the Animals" event.

ABC7's Inland Empire bureau chief Rob McMillan served as grand marshal.

The fundraiser at Fairmount Park featured a 1.5 mile pledge walk, raffles, exhibits and dog agility demonstrations.

Organizers hoped to raise several thousand dollars for the Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center.

The group is the largest no-kill pet adoption agency in Riverside County.
