Lynchburg, VA - The rain didn't put a stop to the Lynchburg Humane Society's "Slobberfest" Saturday.
The event helped raise money for the Humane Society's operating costs, along with food and medical supplies.
Dogs of all sizes competed in 11 different events throughout the day.
This year's event started with a scavenger hunt around the city.
ABC 13's Noreen Turyn joined in the fun with her dog Cadbury.
Even with the rain, the Lynchburg Humane Society was pleased with the turnout.
"We have 60 plus dogs here, which is triple what we had last year. So we are extraordinarily pleased that the weather didn't hinder us too much," said Executive Director Humane Society Makena Yarbrough.
Slobberfest is one of the two big fundraisers the Lynchburg Humane Society puts on each year.
