Four Mile Run was a sea of wagging tails on May 12 as the Animal Welfare League of Arlington hosted its annual Walk for the Animals. While last year the event suffered some light storms, this weekend it was a perfect sunny day as over a hundred dogs, from chihuahuas to retrievers, paraded across Shirlington. This year, the Animal Welfare League raised $69,590.
“It’s just fantastic,” said Gary Sturm, chair of the Animal Welfare League of Arlington. “It’s a great event. We have great sponsors. People bring their kids and their dogs, it’s a real family event.”
