WAYNESBORO, PA. -- Guided by their owners, dozens of dogs put their best paws forward on Sunday to benefit Waynesboro's Antietam Humane Society.
The owners gathered sponsorships and walked their dogs two miles to raise money for the shelter, which is full of dogs and cats awaiting adoption.
"We are really overrun with animals with everything going on in the economy," said Candy Clopper, executive director of the Antietam Humane Society on Lyons Road.
The shelter held its 18th annual "Walk for the Animals," followed by a pet fun festival, at Summitview Elementary School. People and dogs returned from the walk to participate in contests, like "best kisser," "smallest" and "best-dressed."
