With the sun beaming overhead and music filling the air, four-legged critters of all shapes and sizes swarmed the Kitsap County Fairgrounds Saturday.

The Kitsap Humane Society and Apple Tree Cove Animal Hospital teamed up to host the 14th annual PetsWALK Saturday at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds. The event drew creatures big and small including dogs, cats, sheep, llamas and a miniature horse.

Teams and individuals collected money prior to the event and participated in a 1k or 5k walk. Money raised at PetsWALK benefits the Kitsap Humane Society. The Kitsap Humane Society made $25,000 at last year
