If you're a runner or walker, The Seattle Animal Shelter's Furry 5K is a great opportunity for you to help raise money to help the animals.

Shelter staff expects more than 3,000 people and 1,500 pooches for the June 12 event, which begins at 10 a.m. at Seward Park.

Afterward, enjoy live music and browse the Pet Expo vendor area.

An awards ceremony will include prizes for first, second and third place men and women, and the top three dogs with male runners and top three dogs with female runners.

And stick around for the always entertaining "Totally Talented dog trick competition."

All proceeds directly support the Shelter’s “Help the Animals Fund,” which was created in 1977 to pay for life-saving veterinary care for sick, injured and abused animals at the Shelter.
