The cloudy weather Saturday morning didn't stop some dog owners from taking their canine friends out for a little run this morning.
More than 130 people came out to the 5th Annual Tails-N-Trails 5K at the Tippecanoe Amphitheatre.
The event was organized by Almost Home as a way  to raise awareness about the shelter and encourage people to adopt a pet.
Executive Director Michelle Warren says Saturday's race is just one of the many things going on at the shelter.
At midnight the organization also opened its doors for their 48 hour Midnight Madness Adopt-a-thon.
"It's been fun. A lot of hours [of work] so far and we have several more to go. We are looking forward to the rest of the excitement. We're just grateful to have so many people out here with us on behalf of the animals," said Warren.
This year's race helps kick off the ASPCA Rachel Ray $100,000 Challenge.
That challenge runs from June 1-August 31 with the goal of saving as many animals as possible.
