If you're looking for a good cause, there's a great event coming up on Sunday. It's the first annual "Walk for Old Dogs" to benefit Old Dog Haven.

ODH is a network of foster homes in Western Washington who care for senior dogs 8 and older. They currently have more than 200 dogs in their care - from Blaine to Vancouver, Port Orchard to Vashon to Whidbey Island -  and they always have a waiting list of dogs who need homes.

ODH says bills are at $40,000 a month and this event will help raise funds.

Old and young dogs - and people of all ages - are welcome.

The event at Bellevue Downtown Park is not a race, but a fun day to celebrate those gray muzzled senior dogs. You can walk as much (or as little) as you and your dog choose to.

ODH recommends that you bring your own water as there is not an easy source at the park.

The walk is from 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm at Bellevue Downtown Park, located at 10201 NE 4h St. The $25 registration fee includes an ODH tote bag.
