Hundreds attended Valley Humane Society's third annual "Paws in the Park" fundraiser Sunday at Amador Valley Community Park in Pleasanton.
The festival, which raised money to support the shelter's animal lifesaving and community outreach programs, featured a costume, look-alike and talent contests. Vendors were on hand to sell pet-themed products. For most, though, it was a weather-perfect afternoon to show off their dogs and to check out some they might want to adopt.
This year's top "dog pack" was Robert Half International, whose employees, friends and family members raised $2,559 for Valley Humane. The top individual fundraiser was Anna Aliotti of Dublin, who raised $1,044. This year's festival goal was $25,000.
